Tribeca Enterprises and Lionsgate have teamed up to create the new streaming service Tribeca Shortlist, which launches today for the Web and mobile devices. For $4.99 per month, subscribers can peruse through films curated by a select group of “Shortlisters,” or film industry influencers. The service will update more than a third of its streaming library every month.
“We’re taking a more human approach to movie discovery for viewers who want to escape the search spiral and find a great movie fast,” said Jeff Bronikowski, President of Tribeca Shortlist, in a statement. “We’ve found great movies that we’re offering to subscribers as part of a high quality, highly curated movie catalog with exclusive ‘Shortlist’ content that provides context and personal insight, like getting a recommendation from a trusted friend.”
October’s Shortlisters include producer Jason Blum (“Whiplash,” “Paranormal Activity”), documentarian Morgan Spurlock, actor/comedian John Leguizamo, award-winning actor Matthew Modine, actress/model Yaya DaCosta, Tribeca Film Festival senior programmer Cara Cusumano and Tribeca’s VP of Creative Sol Guy. Among the films they’ve personally selected are “Adventureland,” “City of God” and “Amelie.”
Tribeca Shortlist’s library features a mix of films from partners Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises, as well as from major studios and independents. More partners will be coming soon.
The library is divided into several categories, including Cusumano’s “Groundbreaking Horror – Films That Changed the Genre,” Leguizamo’s “Classic Performances – Films With Landmark Performances,” Spurlock’s “Cult Classics 101 – Fundamental Cult Classics,” and Guy’s “The Culture of Politics – Powerful Movies With Political Impact.”
Starting in 2016, Tribeca Shortlist’s monthly cost will be $5.99, but until then it’s $4.99. If you sign up today, you’ll receive a 14-day free trial. Visit www.tribecashortlist.com for more info and check out the below promo video to learn more about the service:
