Founded in 2003, the New York-based distributor Film Movement has built a formidable record of releasing innovative independent cinema from across the globe. Established first as a DVD-of-the-month club (“one of the most successful experiments in alternative modes of distribution”—Indiewire), Film Movement has since released 250 feature films and shorts from 50 countries on six continents, demonstrating its commitment to cutting-edge filmmaking and emerging international talents.

In celebration Film Movement’s decade in the business, this wide-ranging greatest hits collection features films by acclaimed directors such as Maren Ade and Shane Meadows, drawing from Mexico, Singapore, France, Germany, and beyond.
