Netflix signs U.S. deal with Fortissimo

Pact will cover more than 60 titles

BEIJING

Michael Werner’s Hong Kong- and Amsterdam-based Fortissimo Films has announced its first tie-up with Netflix, inking a streaming deal that will cover more than 60 titles that will be available to Netflix members in the U.S. next month.

The films include some of the top arthouse hits in Fortissimo’s 300-pic library, including Jiang Wen’s “Devil on the Doorstep,” Clara Law’s “The Goddess of 1967,” Tian Zhuangzhuang’s “The Go Master” and Rashid Masharawi’s “Haifa.”

It also covers new movies such as “Mama Africa” by Mika Kaurismaki.

This is Fortissimo’s first major foray into the new digital space, although it previously made several small experimental licensing arrangements in Australia and the U.S.

“In making these critically praised films from all over the world available to American audiences, many for the first time, a great collaboration has been established and we look forward to expanding that with additional titles in the coming months,” said Winnie Lau, executive veep of Fortissimo.
