PS3 pacts with online movie library

Mubi will roll out in Europe this fall

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has inked with online film library site the Auteurs — rebranded as Mubi — to incorporate its services onto the PlayStation 3 game console.

The distribution deal allows PS3 users to download Mubi for free, watch streaming ad-sponsored films for free or via pay per view or a monthly subscription, allowing access to Mubi’s entire catalog, SCEE prexy-CEO Andrew House said Tuesday in Cannes.

Mubi will roll out this fall in western Europe.

Launched by prexy Efe Cakarel in 2009, with early support from Costa Films, the Auteurs offers arthouse and indie films, festival gems and classics.

It taps fare from Celluloid Dreams, whose prexy, Hengameh Panahi, is also prexy of Mubi Europe. Other movie suppliers include Criterion Collection, Artificial Eye, Bac Films, Cineart, Hopscotch and the Martin Scorsese-founded World Cinema Foundation.

Mubi has just signed up all of Agnes Varda’s films, Mexican portmanteau pic “Revolucion” and Im Sang-Soo’s Cannes competition player “The Housemaid.”

“Our partnership with PlayStation brings online cinema to TV screens around the world,” Cakarel said.
