New Subscription-Based Streaming Platform to Showcase Spanish Film History

MADRID – A digital media platform that showcases nearly 3,000 Spanish movies and pitches itself as an online film library of Spain’s greats launched on Wednesday at the Royal Spanish Academy in Madrid.

Enrique Cerezo, a cinematographic producer and current Atetico de Madrid president, launched FlixOle a new subscription-based streaming media service which is set to give users access to an in-depth library of Spanish film history for 2.29 euros ($2.63) a month.

“The idea behind the project is to give both national and international consumers access to Spain’s audiovisual cultural heritage,” Cerezo said at the press launch of the new media platform.

“The history of Spanish cinema runs in parallel to Spanish history, reflects societies desires and longings and as such should be conserved for future generations,” he added.

FlixOle at present offers 1,500 movies and series from some of Spain’s great directors including Luis Garcia-Berlanga, Luis Buñuel, Josep Joan Bigas and Alex de la Iglesia, although the library will also include some international productions.

The target is to bulk up the catalog to around 7,000 series and movies by adding between 30 and 40 new titles a month.

Cerezo has not ruled out the possibility of doing in-house productions however the focus for the moment is to digitize his vast collection due to the fact he owns the rights to a whopping 80 percent of all Spanish film that has ever been produced.
