NEON is partnering with Letterboxd, the fast growing global social network for film discussion and discovery, across its slate of documentary and international films which have been short listed for the 93rd Academy Awards® in an exclusive deal starting this Monday, March 8. For a limited time (March 8th to March 14th), all six of NEON’s shortlisted titles will be made available to Letterboxd users for the discounted bundle price of $19.99 at watch.neonrated.com. This marks the first time Letterboxd will be offering new films that have not streamed on any other platforms directly to its members.
The six films will include: Gunda directed by Victor Kossakovsky and executive produced by Joaquin Phoenix; Gianfranco Rosi’s Notturno; The Painter and the Thief directed by Benjamin Ree; Andrei Konchalovsky’s Dear Comrades!, Russia’s Academy Award® Submission; Night of the Kings, Philippe Lacôte’s Ivory Coast Oscar Submission; and Jasmila Žbanić’s Quo Vadis, Aida?, the Bosnia and Herzegovina submission.
“Letterboxd loves connecting our audience of film fans with the works of great filmmakers,” commented Letterboxd’s David Larkin. “Partnering with NEON to offer this selection of six sensational films is an exciting opportunity for our community to be part of the awards-season conversation.”
Andrew Brown negotiated the deal for NEON along with David Larkin for Letterboxd.
