A new indie site launches Wednesday which aims to stream independent film in Netflix-style for $10 a month. Fandor allows you to browse, sample, clip and stream its library of 2500 films and shorts on its website or Facebook.
Here is an excerpt from the site:
Fandor is an online service for indie film fans. It offers a new way to discover, watch and share features, shorts, documentaries and international films. For everyone from the festival goer to the indie-curious, Fandor provides a film experience you can’t find anywhere else.
Here is a snippet about their plans for social networks:
By partnering with leading social networks, Fandor makes it easy for fans to enhance and personalize each film experience. Users can discover hidden gems recommended by friends and instantly clip and share favorite scenes to spark group discussions. Fandor makes it easy for people to host clips on their profile, write film critiques, and share clips and comments with their friends.
Some of their popular films include Ben Steinbauer‘s Winnebago Man and Hilary Harris‘ Highway. We’re seeing some insightful reviews and ratings from members, so hopefully the community will be a draw as well. Check it out and let us know what you think.
