Curated streaming service MUBI announced its launch in India on November 15, featuring film channels MUBI India and MUBI World, which are home to a variety of cinema including exclusives, cult movies, shorts, and features.

MUBI offers a collection of thirty hand-picked films, introducing a new film every day, with the selection being guided by local culture and cinema. The service includes curated film channels MUBI India which is fully dedicated to Indian cinema, and MUBI World, which shows acclaimed international films, from award-winners to emerging new directors.

The platform has partnered with distributors like FilmKaravan, NFDC, PVR Pictures, Shemaroo and Ultra to showcase their line-up. MUBI India will bring titles such as Kamal Swaroop’s cult film Om Dar-Ba-Dar, Kanu Behl’s Binnu Ka Sapna, and Mani Kaul’s critically-acclaimed ghost film, Duvidha.

MUBI World will be curated to introduce one new film from around the world each day. Titles playing include Asif Kapadia’s Amy, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave and Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash.

Efe Cakarel, founder and CEO of MUBI said, “We want more people to watch great cinema. That’s why MUBI exists. I can’t wait to see people enjoying the incredible line-up of films we have, and I’m delighted that we can now spotlight local filmmakers and cinema through MUBI India every single day.”

Guneet Monga, Oscar-winning film producer, who joined MUBI as a content advisor in September, added, “MUBI’s human approach to curation is refreshingly simple and each day it is guaranteed that you will be able to watch a beautiful, interesting film. I’m thrilled we have launched a dedicated channel for Indian cinema as it means that film lovers can now watch amazing films like Salaam Bombay and Andaz Apna Apna, alongside globally renowned gems like Moonlight.”
