Sheffield Doc/Fest and Curzon Home Cinema have teamed up to offer a selection of new documentary shorts to a home cinema audience.
The five films, which are in competition at this year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, are
Xenos by Mahdi Fleifel, Still Can’t Hear Her Mouth by Derville Quigley, En Vogue by Jenn Nkiru, Rebel Menopause by Adele Tulli and Adrift by Frederik Jan Depickere.
All 5 films will be available to view online for the next month for a special event price of £1 each, enabling those who aren’t able to attend the event to join in from the sofa.
This is not the first time Curzon has partnered with a festival: earlier this year, the pay-per-view service held an Ultra VOD premiere of the Georgian film In Bloom on the same night as its UK premiere as the opening film of the Birds Eye Film Festival. Every year, Curzon also holds an on-demand French film festival.
The partnership follows a major re-launch of Curzon Home Cinema, making its catalogue of arthouse and independent titles easier to browse, and a new deal with Freesat’s Freetime, which joins BT TV and Samsung Smart TV as TV-ready platforms through which the site can be accessed.
Phil Mordecai, Director of Curzon Home Cinema, comments: “We are very pleased to be working with Sheffield Doc/Fest this year. Having just re-launched Curzon Home Cinema, we look to continue to embrace interesting film programming and working with forward-thinking, like-minded festivals such as Sheffield Doc/Fest is part of this. One of our aims with Curzon Home Cinema is to showcase new filmmaking talent. We are therefore excited to help bring these new exemplary documentary shorts to a wider audience with Sheffield Doc/Fest.”
