There's no place like Fandor.
We’re movie fans. Fanatics, actually. We started this company to help fellow film enthusiasts discover amazing, hard-to-find films from all over the world.
At Fandor we believe our job is to connect amazing films with audiences who will love them. Most of our films fall outside mainstream channels and we love that, because there are plenty of places to watch those films online. We specialize in shorts, independents, film festivals favorites, classics and international films.
We built the Fandor experience with curation in mind, to take the hard work out of finding great movies. We start you off with a rich library of hand-picked selections that capture stories from different cultures, time periods and genres. We provide the tools and insights you need to explore and make your own great discoveries. We also give you great shortcuts with a curated Fandor Channel and films in the Spotlight.
Come join us! Adventure awaits as you explore these great stories and share your discoveries.
Fandor is a home for movie lovers and enthusiasts who want to explore the world through film and maybe have a potentially transformative experience, or at least a really enjoyable couple of hours.
What we love about film is the potential to use this very technical art form to tell a story that people not only watch, but feel, experience and learn from. At Fandor, we may not always have that specific title you’re searching for, but we promise you that you’re going to find something that will incite your passions or, at the very least, pique your interest.
We’ve got thousands of films from over a hundred countries, drawn from every decade of filmmaking practice beginning with the 1890s. In addition to undisputed masterpieces of cinema and overlooked festival gems from yesteryear, we’ve got schlocky zombie musicals, forgotten noirs, chopsocky martial arts extravaganzas and film hand picked from more than 200 genres, subgenres and sub-subgenres. Who knows, we might help you uncover new fetishes that you didn’t even know you had.
Most other online movie-screening sites provides little or no direct benefit whatsoever to its creator. We think that’s outrageous!
As film fans, we believe in supporting the community that brings us great films. It’s only fair. Half of your subscription fee goes to the people who provide us with films. This means that for every $2 we take in we pay $1 to filmmakers or distributors, depending on who owns the rights. You can bask in karmic goodness knowing that you’re helping the film’s creators since we pay them based on how much time their film gets watched, even if it’s just a few seconds.
We’ve learned firsthand that the only joy greater than discovering a wonderful movie is sharing it with friends. As an online cinema we’ve make it easy to spread the word about your favorite films and filmmakers on Twitter and Facebook.
