Popular film streaming service MUBI is now giving away free subscriptions to film students around the world.
The offer, which runs for the duration of the students’ course and is being run association with the International Association of Film and Television Schools / Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision, is open to 60,000 film students and their teachers.
MUBI CEO and founder Efe Cakarel said: “For us, it’s simple: the best films, from the classics to the cutting-edge, should be available to the next generation of filmmakers.
“We hope you enjoy this gift, that you get lost in a world of film and that one day, MUBI will be screening yours.”
Today’s global roll-out follows a successful pilot with the UK’s National Film and Television School (NFTS).
Dr. Jon Wardle, Director of the NFTS said: “MUBI has proved to be an invaluable resource for our students, we’re so pleased that aspiring filmmakers around the world will now be able to use and enjoy it as our school has.”
Maureen Gueunet, an NFTS alumni of the Film Studies, Programming and Curation MA, commented: “With its carefully curated films, MUBI enabled me to expand my knowledge of cinema and discover many new directors and films, from cult classics to contemporary experimental works.
“A must-have for any cinephile!”
MUBI recently acquired Thomas Arslan’s “Bright Nights,” which screened at Berlin last year and will be screened on MUBI on the 23rd February.
