Independent distributor Kino Lorber has launched Kino Film Collection, a US streaming service offering new Kino releases fresh from theatrical runs as well as films from the company’s 4,000-title library of classic, international and cult features.
The service, which will be available through Amazon’s Prime Video Channels for $5.99 a month, extends Kino Lorber’s growing digital operation. The distributor recently acquired North American streaming service MHz Choice and Topic, and launched TVoD Kino Now.
Films from the company’s 4,000-title library already on the service include the 4K restoration of Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Conformist, Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth, Jafar Panahi’s Taxi and Ana Lilly Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. Also streaming are classics such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and Sergei Eisentstein’s Battleship Potemkin.
The service will be updated monthly with streaming premieres of films recently on theatrical release, including Chile ’76, Framing Agnes, Final Cut and Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power.
Kino Lorber President and CEO Richard Lorber said, “I’m excited to have Kino Film Collection, as a destination, for our newest films, fresh from festivals and theaters, as well newly launched restorations and curated selections of our vast library. Many of these will be streaming for the very first time.”
