New York, NY — October 23, 2020 — Kino Lorber celebrates the one-year anniversary of its digital streaming platform, Kino Now, with a selection of its most essential films.
To mark the anniversary, Kino Lorber is making available for a limited time eight films to rent for free, reflecting a mix of award-winning international, documentary, American independent, and classic cinema.
The coupon can be redeemed through November 15, and once redeemed will be active for 15 days. Sign-up for Kino Now is free, no subscription required.
Included in the free binge are recent international hits like Taika Waititi’s heartwarming coming-of-age family drama Boy, and Oscar® shortlisted Russian WWII drama Beanpole. Kino Lorber’s slate of critically acclaimed documentaries is represented by Dawson City: Frozen Time about the discovery of a treasure trove of lost films in Northern Canada. Fans of Eliza Hittman’s new film Never Rarely Sometimes Always will want to check out her Brooklyn-set indie debut It Felt Like Love, while classic film buffs can enjoy restorations of Fritz Lang’s silent masterpiece Metropolis, and fresh from their repertory re-releases, Ida Lupino’s Film Noir thriller The Hitch-Hiker, and Bette Gordon’s Variety, a feminist time capsule of seedy early-’80s Times Square. Finally, those looking for spiritual calm in these tumultuous times can find it in Walk With Me, a Benedict Cumberbatch-narrated portrait of Thich Nhat Hanh, who helped popularize the teachings of mindfulness in the Western world.
Since its launch last fall, Kino Now has grown to more than 1000 titles individually offered for digital rental or purchase — no subscription necessary — culled from the rich library of Kino Lorber and its partner labels. Additionally, a new selection of approximately 50 titles are added to the platform each month.
Kino Now brings movie lovers the masterworks of yesterday and new films destined to be the classics of tomorrow. Available a click away for rental and purchase all in a one-stop shop, this superbly curated digital library brings new convenience to savoring great cinema at home, as well as allowing film lovers to build permanent digital collections of their favorites to watch whenever they want on any device from portable handhelds to large home theater screens.
Richard Lorber, President & CEO of Kino Lorber, said, “As a distributor we launched Kino Now as a fresh channel focused on the groundbreaking narratives and documentaries we offer. The anniversary binge was curated as a snapshot of the great works in our library and offered as a ‘thank you’ to our most loyal customers and a ‘welcome’ for newcomers wishing to experience cinema.”
