The Auteurs

What started off on Facebook as a group for film lovers has involved into a fully-fledged website, that was launched at this year's Berlinale. Although it is still at a rudimentary development stage they already have a good selection of international independent feature and short films, covering everything from classics to documentaries, that can be watched online. It also has a forum and other ways for filmmakers and film lovers to interact.

According the the founders: "The Auteurs delivers great films from prominent festivals around the world through video streaming and downloading. Bypassing the hype, we are dedicated to unearthing established and emerging filmmakers. Yet The Auteurs' experience is not just about watching movies. We are devoted to bringing the most original coverage of festivals, filmmaking, and cinema culture together with a dynamic online platform that fosters film discussion. Focusing on entertaining a well-heeled international audience, it is our intention to create a community of the most interested and interesting film fans in the world."
