Muvizz is an Over The Top (OTT) or Video On Demand (VOD) platform offering cult, classic and independent films to cinema lovers around the world. It offers only a curated list of titles ranging from short films to documentaries to feature films in various languages to its users so that they don’t have to go through thousands of titles to decide which one to watch. Every week a selected number of titles are released on the platform. The platform will soon start releasing one title a day in future with specific days reserved for Hindi features, non-features like documentaries and shorts, regional cinema and foreign language film. Muvizz plans to continuously build its library of films across languages and genres so that it be a one stop to watch world cinema- cinema that matters!
The whole idea is to create a social community of Cinephiles where movies are used as a medium for discussion and debates on its platform. They have “The Critics Corner” wherein viewers can express themselves about the film and also have the option to like and comment as well. Users can create their profiles on Muvizz and they can follow other users similar to popular social media channels which make the content discovery process easier. There is a section called “The Diary” wherein people discuss about social issues using cinema. “Do Bigha Zameen to Land Acquisition Bill” was a recent article in “The Diary”.
The company is working towards having an exclusive content on website which includes creating its own content like short films, documentaries and web series. Noted film personalities like Vishal Bharadwaj, Anurag Kashyap, Shabana Azmi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ketan Mehta, Sudhir Mishra, Hansal Mehta, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Rajkumar Rao have all supported this great endeavor such that independent films and film makers can use technology to have a wider reach. They are known as “Friends of Muvizz on the website". By supporting a venture such as muvizz.com, they are in a way contributing to the medium of cinema and encouraging young film makers to make good content.
