Media Release: Senses of Cinema Announces New Cinema-On-Demand Streaming Service

14 October 2016

Long-running film site Senses of Cinema has just launched a new Cinema-On-Demand video streaming service.

Over 20 new, rare and classic film titles are available to stream online to Australian viewers starting this month as part of Senses of Cinema’s beta streaming service. Films can be rented online for US$5.95 and are available to watch for up to three days. Films can be viewed on the web, iPhone, Android and Roku.

The Cinema-On-Demand service aims to expand the Senses of Cinema experience for readers by providing a selection of film titles hand-picked by its editors.

Senses of Cinema’s readers have an informed, passionate and serious attitude toward cinema as an art. Our editorial team has tried to reflect that attitude in the initial selections that they’ve made for our Cinema-On-Demand service”, said Senses of Cinema’s President, David Oakley.

Selected titles include Senses of Cinema reader favourites Tehran Taxi, directed by Jafar Panahi, and Lenny Abrahamson’s What Richard Did and Frank. Also included are Akira Kurosawa’s genius Throne of Blood, Australian masterpieces Samson and Delilah (Warwick Thornton) and Snowtown (Justin Kurzel), Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth, and a selection of early films by Wim Wenders.

Senses of Cinema is a treasure trove for people who like intelligent discussion about cinema. It’s a truly valuable resource for film culture in this country and beyond”, said former At The Movies host Margaret Pomeranz.
