Mubi is one of the most popular points of contact for all cinema fans and arthouse fans. Since Thursday, the streaming service has been adding a new section to its range of countless classic films that are always available for viewing.
The concept for Mubi is actually that a new film is added to the streaming program every day. In contrast to Netflix, Prime Video and Co., however, it cannot happen that the films disappear on the watchlist of users for too long. Each film must be watched within 30 days before it disappears from the program. This principle remains in place for the regular program of the VoD provider. But with a brand new section, Mubi now wants to offer all film fans the opportunity to catch up on missed titles and rediscover some films from scratch.
“Video library” is the simple title of the new section, which has been available on the website since Thursday. There are hundreds of films from the art house area to stream right from the start. These include prominent titles such as the anti-war film “Apocalypse Now”, Wim Wenders ‘” The Sky Over Berlin “or” The Seventh Seal “by Ingmar Bergmann. The video library is a mixture of well-known classics and insider tips that probably were only known to regular festival guests up to now. Many films in the program have so far not been published regularly in Germany.
Particularly featured retrospectives on the site include films by, among others, Charlie Chaplin, Agnés Varda, Werner Herzog, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard or the German director provocateur Christoph Schlingensief. An overview of the film offer is available on the website of the streaming platform.
In addition to the curated 30-day film program for users, the new video library is also included. A Mubi subscription currently costs EUR 9.99 per month. The streaming service is free of charge for students. The video library section is currently only available via the Internet browser. However, the new offer will soon also be available via the Apple and Android apps.
