FilmDoo, the London and Sydney-based online film viewing and discovery platform, launched earlier this summer and is helping people discover, watch and share diverse international and independent films from around the world.
“Our aim at FilmDoo is to explore new realms of cinema and to make it possible to learn, discover and share films from different backgrounds, communities and sexualities,” said Filmdoo co-founder Weerada Sucharitkul.
“We want to be the go-to place for LGBTQI film,” says FilmDoo co-founder Will Page, “and we’re not stopping there. With our remit being independent, art-house and non-mainstream cinema, we‘ll be hosting more exciting films in the months to come.”
FilmDoo recently partnered with Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Festival in London. It hosted the festival’s closing night film, Simo Halinen’s Open Up To Me, a Finnish tale that follows a transgender woman and a married man, whose affair has unexpected consequences for all involved.
Head of Programming Simon Savory says, “Transgender rights and issues have been under the spotlight recently across the political spectrum and in the media, so it’s a pleasure to have a strong, positive feature film portrayal of these themes closing the festival and available to view at FilmDoo”
FilmDoo also closed a major output deal with the UK’s Peccadillo Pictures agreeing to host 150 of their films, plus more than one hundred short films.
