Spamflix Streaming Platform for Cult and Rare Films is now available

  83a04018-1b6d-4b85-b662-2b1a57153e1a.jpg

 

Spamflix Streaming Platform with APPs for iOS, Android, AirPlay and Chromecast

 

SPAMFLIX, the Video on Demand platform for “never before seen” cult films is now available on mobile and TVs. With a catalogue of +90 films, starting today, those same films can be rented and streamed inside the Spamflix App.

 

Spamflix was founded in 2018 by Markus Duffner, a project manager at the Locarno Film Festival and Julia Duarte, former producer of São Paulo International Film Festival. Called ‘Netflix for Cult Film Fans’ by GEEK SPIN and featured in Forbes, the bulk of Spamflix’s library consists of hard to find and lesser-seen genre titles, many of which garnered acclaim on the festival circuit only to land without significant distribution. 

 

A treasure trove for cult film enthusiasts that has a specialty focus on black comedy and adult animation, the new app makes it easier than ever before to browse and stream films. Spamflix doesn’t run on a monthly subscription. Instead, users rent individual films for 72 hours for the price of around 4€ Euros or acquire multiple titles in a Film Pack deal that offers a special discount.

 

“With the app we aim to reach a larger audience through a variety of devices, all offering the same catalogue and attention to showcasing cult and genre cinema that Spamflix excels in,” says Spamflix co-founder Markus Duffner. "However, when we planned this months ago we couldn’t have accounted for the current worldwide situation, and hope that releasing it now helps those stuck indoors to pass their days more pleasantly.” 

 

Spamflix’s diverse library, which includes film categories like Black Comedy, Crime, Nonsense, WTF Did I Just Watch? And the timely #staythefuckhome tag contains festival hits such as Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra’s Good Manners (Winner - Best Directors, Locarno 2017) and films by fellow cult directors such as Alex Cox, Denis Côté (who each have retrospectives specially curated by Spamflix on the platform), Sion Sono, Quentin Dupieux, Peter Strickland, Davide Manuli, Yeon Sang-ho and Hitoshi Matsumoto.

Recent additions are Peter Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio (Locarno’s Golden Leopard nominée and Sitges Critic’s Special Mention), Alex Cox’s cult classic Straight to Hell Returns, acclaimed erotic fantasy The Wild Boys by Bertrand Mandico, Gábor Reisz’s For Some Inexplicable Reason festival darling, surreal Ethiopian sci-fi Crumbs by Miguel Llansó, italian comedy mockumentary Burning Love by Alberto Caviglia’s, Shugo Fujii’s mutant J-horror Mimicry Freaks and 2018 Cannes Critics Week’s winner Diamantino by Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt available now on Spamflix.

Additional titles to come include, Bruno Aleixo’s Film dir. João Moreira and Pedro Santo (14/05), Crumbs dir. Miguel Llansó (21/05), Neurotic Quest for Serenity dir. Teodoro Poppovic Paulinho Caruso (28/05), The Anooki dir. Moetu Batlle and David Passegand (June/TBD), In the Crosswind dir. Martti Helde (June), Old Man Cartoon Movie dir. Oskar Lehemaa and Mikk Mägi (June), Thee Wreckers Tetralogy dir. Rosto (July), Occidental dir. Neïl Beloufa (August), Hidden Reserves dir. Valentin Hitz (September) and fantasy first feature Cosmic Candy (Fantastic Fest and Sitges entry 2019) dir. Rinio Dragasaki (September).

 

Spamflix is also proud to offer special short film programs from partnering festivals. Currently available in the library is the Fantasia Shorts Programme 2019, a collection of Quebecois shorts from the celebrated genre fest in Montreal, and the Trieste Science + Fiction Shorts Programme (a collection of Italian Sci-Fi Shorts). Upcoming blocks include shorts from Brooklyn Horror Film Festival (April 30th), NIFFF (May 14th), Fantastic Fest (May 28th), Lund Fantastik Film Fest (June 11th), Phenomena Film Fest (June 25th), and Morbido Film Festival shorts (TBD), BIFFF (TBD) and Court Métrange (2021).
