Fandor just launched a pretty amazing 2014 Queer Cinema Spotlight for Pride Month. Twenty-two films make up the series, including work by Todd Haynes, Su Friedrich, Xavier Dolan, Wong Kar-wai, Jean Genet, Todd Verow, Monika Treut, Derek Jarman and Cheryl Dunye and the Fandor premiere of Marlon Riggs’ landmark film exploring the African-American gay community, “Tongues Untied” (many of which made our recent list of the most important LGBT films).
“This list represents only a handful of the exceptional LGBTQ films that we are delighted to offer,” said Jonathan Marlow, Fandor’s co-founder and Chief Content Officer. “Unlike other streaming services, Fandor meticulously selects titles for our extensive library in order to bring many of the greatest films (LGBTQ and otherwise) available to our members.”
Other films in the series include Haynes’ “Poison,” Kar-wai’s “Happy Together,” Dolan’s “I Killed My Mother,” Dunye’s “The Watermelon Woman,” Jarman’s “Sebastiane,” Genet’s “Un Chant D’Amour” and Bill Sherwood’s “Parting Glances” — all genuine queer classics.
