Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises have announced a subscription VOD service to carry “a prestigious” selection of films from both companies as well as third-party global content.
Tribeca will curate the material alongside “leading voices in contemporary culture” and refresh on a weekly basis.
The New York-based service is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2015. No titles were revealed at time of writing.
At this stage the parties said Tribeca Short List would be led by a general manager and board of directors comprising Lionsgate and Tribeca executives as well as an advisory board.
“The launch of the Tribeca Short List service unites two powerful brands and underscores our commitment to collaborate with blue-chip partners around the world to deliver premium content to online audiences,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer.
“The Tribeca name resonates with movie aficionados everywhere, and our service will encompass a highly curated, diverse and prestigious portfolio of quality films.”
“We are pleased to join with Lionsgate, a world-class brand synonymous with innovation and exciting, quality entertainment, to create a highly curated experience that disrupts the ‘more-is-more’ model in today’s streaming on-demand landscape,” said Jane Rosenthal, CEO of Tribeca Enterprises.
“Tribeca Short List aims to be a service where you can see films you never got to watch, forgot to watch, and want to watch.”
