The pact makes Hulu the exclusive streaming home for future IFC Films, Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight documentaries directly after their theatrical releases. The multiyear agreement marks the first time IFC Films-branded docs will be available on Hulu within the first window after releases in theaters and on-demand.
The deal will start with the doc King Georges, which will hit theaters and VOD on Feb. 26 and will become available on Hulu later this year. That will be followed by Hulu’s streaming of City of Gold, a film about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, after its theatrical release on March 11.
The pact also includes Weiner, the IFC Films and Showtime title that had its world premiere at Sundance on Jan. 24. Showtime has a 15 month window after the theatrical release, after which the film will stream on Hulu.
The agreement expands Hulu’s partnership with AMC Networks, which owns and operates IFC Films, Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight as sister labels. Last year, Hulu and AMC Networks inked an output deal for the exclusive SVOD rights to new and upcoming primetime scripted drama and comedy series from AMC, IFC, BBC America, SundanceTV and WE tv.
The agreement also brought films from the IFC Films, Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight collection exclusively to Hulu, including Sleepwalk With Me and Pina.
