Streaming-movie site Fandor has teamed with a few independent distributors to open some of their independent movies in limited release the same day they’re available on the internet. First up from distributor Kino Lorber is the 1967 film DAVID HOLZMAN’S DIARY, which is receiving a re-release at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on June 15, the day Fandor makes it available for streaming. Next month, the cross-promotion venture will focus on the indie film SLEEP FURIOUSLY from distributor Microcinema, which is getting a theatrical release in New York in late July, the same day it will be available for streaming at Fandor for 24 hours. Fandor gets full streaming rights to the film after it ends its three-month limited theatrical run. Fandor, launched in March, is a $10-per-month subscription video service for independent, classic and foreign films. The site boasts 3,000 titles and is adding as many as 100 more each week.
