About Film Movement

Founded in 2002, Film Movement is a North American distributor of award-winning independent and foreign films based in New York City. We have released more than 300 feature films culled from prestigious film festivals worldwide, including the Oscar-nominated films Theeb (2016) and Corpus Christi (2020).

Film Movement’s theatrical releases include American independent films, documentaries, and foreign art house titles. Our catalog includes titles by directors such as Hirokazu Kore-eda, Maren Ade, Ryusuke Hamaguchi, Jessica Hausner, Andrei Konchalovsky, Andrzej Wajda, Ciro Guerra and Melanie Laurent.

In 2015, Film Movement launched the reissue label Film Movement Classics, featuring new restorations released theatrically as well as on Blu-ray and DVD by such noted auteur directors as Eric Rohmer, Peter Greenaway, Bille August, Marleen Gorris, Takeshi Kitano, King Hu, Arturo Ripstein, Sergio Corbucci and Luchino Visconti.

Our Omnibus Entertainment label was launched in 2014 to provide a home for a wider variety of films as well as TV and other types of programming.

With the addition of the Bond 360 catalog of superb documentaries in 2017, Film Movement has further expanded its reach into the educational and library markets.

In late 2018 we launched Film Movement Plus, our subscription streaming service, available at FilmMovementPlus.com as well as on Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku and mobile devices.  Film Movement Plus launched as an Amazon Prime Channel in late 2023.
