Digital distributors Babelgum and Content Republic announced today that they will be partnering to present 24 independent film titles on Babelgum as online exclusives. Titles include Lars Von Trierʼs "The Boss Of It All," "Before The Rain" and Steve Barronʼs "Choking Man." Two films will be made available, free of charge, per month over the course of a year, beginning in May 2009, after which they will remain up on the platform non-exclusively.

Speaking from the EFM in Berlin, Teun Hilte, co-founder of Content Republic, said: “We are proud to be working with Babelgum at this exciting time where new routes to market are finally opening up and we can add value for the distributors, sales agents and producers we represent by tapping into previously untapped revenue streams."
