Eurocinema, a transactional video-on-demand platform specializing in foreign movies, March 12 said it signed a content license agreement with Miramax.
Beginning March 15, new and catalog foreign-themed Miramax titles will be available monthly to Eurocinema’s subscribers on transactional VOD from $3.95 to $4.99 per movie. Eurocinema is available to about 35 million viewers via Comcast, Cablevision, Charter, Dish Network and related multichannel video program distributors. Movies are available in their native language with English subtitles.
Miramax titles available this month include: Malena, with Monica Bellucci; About Adam, with Kate Hudson; Daughter of D’Artangnan (Revenge of the Musketeers), with Sophie Marceau; and Dirty Pretty Things, with Audrey Tatou.
Beginning April 1, Eurocinema will premiere four-time Oscar nominee Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Italian thriller I’m Not Scared, Golden Globe nominee Kinky Boots and BAFTA nominee With a Friend Like Harry, among others.
Founded in 1979 by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Miramax was sold to The Walt Disney Co. in 1993 and subsequently sold again in 2010 to an investment group. The Santa Monica, Calif.-based company operates a film catalog of more than 700 titles. It has a packaged media distribution agreement with Lionsgate, in addition to separate transactional VOD deals in Europe.
