MUBI Expands to India


The curated film streaming service MUBI has launched in India, priced at an introductory rate of 199 rupees ($2.80) for the first three months.

The Indian offering encompasses MUBI India for local titles, among them Om Dar-B-Dar, Binnu Ka Sapna and Duvidha; and MUBI World, delivering one new film from around the world every day. The MUBI World lineup includes Amy, 12 Years a Slave and A Bigger Splash. The platform has sealed partnerships with local distributors such as FilmKaravan, NFDC, PVR Pictures, Shemaroo and Ultra.

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, 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.”
