How MUBI works

MUBI is a subscription VOD service that specialises in world cinema, independent films, old classics and arthouse gems. Its hand-picked approach is unique by adding a film every day – and removing it 30 days later. The result is a constantly updating carousel of curated movies. What’s on MUBI?
