Tribeca Short List will launch in 2015

Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises are pairing up to launch a subscription video-on-demand service, the two companies announced Monday morning.

The service, called Tribeca Short List, will include a selection of titles from the two companies, as well as critically acclaimed films from around the world, as curated by Tribeca and various influencers. Based out of New York and led by a general manager, a board of directors with Lionsgate and Tribeca executives, and an advisory board of entertainment influencers, the service will launch in the first half of 2015 and will be refreshed on a weekly basis.

"The launch of the Tribeca Short List service unites two powerful brands and underscores our commitment to collaborate with blue-chip partners around the world to deliver premium content to online audiences," said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer in a statement. "The Tribeca name resonates with movie aficionados everywhere, and our service will encompass a highly curated, diverse and prestigious portfolio of quality films."

"We are pleased to join with Lionsgate, a world-class brand synonymous with innovation and exciting, quality entertainment, to create a highly curated experience that disrupts the 'more is more' model in today’s streaming on-demand landscape," added Jane Rosenthal, CEO of Tribeca Enterprises, which owns and operates the Tribeca Film Festival. "Tribeca Short List aims to be a service where you can see films you never got to watch, forgot to watch and want to watch."
