HF Productions, the company behind an established series of global, independent film festivals, will be launching new streaming platform FILMPIXS on February 17th.
FILMPIXS primarily champions short films on the platform, in addition to a selection of international feature documentaries, many of which showcase global, impactful narratives as a force for change. The platform will be available worldwide, via a monthly/annual subscription model.
The FILMPIXS line-up represents content from prestige film festivals such as Cannes, Toronto, Venice and Sundance, international short film festival award winners and, through the long-standing work of the platform's curators HF Productions and their partnerships with global NGOs and the United Nations, FILMPIXS will spotlight engaging social impact stories and new voices in filmmaking.
The streaming platform is currently in its soft-launch phase and February's official launch will be marked by a further 100+ films being made available to subscribers. Fresh from the likes of SXSW, Tribeca, Rotterdam and Sundance, new content will continue to be added to the service weekly. With a small number of exceptions, the majority of FILMPIXS content will be available to viewers worldwide.
Highlights on FILMPIXS at launch on February 17th will include the Czech animated short and Oscar nominee DCERA (Daughter) from Daria Kascheeva, about a woman trying to reconnect with her estranged father; the 2020 Goya Award multiple nominee EL ESCRITOR DE UN PAÍS SIN LIBRERÍAS (The Writer from a Country Without Bookstores) by Marc Serena, a documentary which follows a man from Equatorial Guinea, who goes on a hunger strike to protest against the Teodoro Obiang dictatorship; and Jan Vejnar's FIGURANT, which was part of SXSW's Official Selection in 2020. Also launching on FILMPIXS is SIN CIELO (For Your Consideration), which took home the Grand Jury Prize at Seattle International Film Festival. Also on the service will be Tomek Popakul's Polish animation short, ACID RAIN, which follows a young runaway’s journey to self-discovery and premiered at Sundance in 2019.
