What are we watching tonight? With so many different ways to find great independent films, Fandor’s search tools offer a unique experience in curation and organization. Use these tools to explore and discover all kinds of fantastic cinema, and find out why Lincoln Spector of TechHive says, “When it comes to browsing tools, Fandor beats any other streaming service I’ve tried.”
In the mood for a film about something specific? Spotlights and Journeys are all tools to use when searching Fandor for a particular subject or theme. Spotlights are handpicked collections of films centering on a theme or topic, like LGBTQ film, Avant-garde film, and even space. Journeys into Film, on the other hand, are explorations into films that follow the same motifs and concepts across style and history, and are often selected by special guest curators. Espionage, mind-altering substances, sport and pets are just some of the subject matter found in the Journeys.
There are lots of ways to search for films on Fandor other than by subject matter or content!
