Fandor is one of the leading sites in this endeavor. The streaming platform announced at BAMcinemaFest today that it will be teaming up with Factory 25, the Brooklyn-based independent film and music distributor, to release 7 independent films together. Fandor will release the films on its site, while Factory 25 will release them theatrically and through transactional platforms.
Some of the titles include Todd Rohal’s SXSW Audience Award winner “Uncle Kent 2,” as well as Nathan Silver’s “Stinking Heaven” and Pavan Moondi and Brian Robertson’s “Diamond Tongues.”
