A Canadian First: VOD launch coinciding with a dramatic feature film festival screening!
First Weekend Club (FWC), in partnership with the Whistler Film Festival are about to bring the film festival experience into homes across Canada. Immediately following the World Premiere of the Canadian Mockumentary, AFTER FILM SCHOOL onDecember 5th, the film will be made available online through FWC’s soon-to-be-launched Video on Demand service, Canada Screens.
Canada Screens gives Canadian content a home, by creating a globally recognized online “cinema” where film fans can discover, enjoy and engage with Canadian films and content creators in a cost efficient and user-friendly platform without a huge corporate infrastructure.
Canada Screens is unlike any other VOD service currently available. Not satisfied with merely providing the best in English and French language Canadian filmed content, Canada Screens shines a light on audience engagement and interaction. With exclusive complementary content, and a strong social media tie-in, Canada Screens is a platform intent on helping Canadians discover their own homegrown talent.
The full VOD service will be launched in February 2015. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, watch AFTER FILM SCHOOL online starting December 5th at 8:30 PM PST and follow #FWCLive at the Whistler Film Festival.
