There’s a new streaming service in town, and this one is serving the niche of being home to feature-length and short documentary films. Documentary+ is a free streaming service available on all devices launching with a curated selection of films for every docu-lover. Documentary+ is a joint venture between nonfiction studio XTR and the late Tony Hsieh.
“There has never been a more exciting time for nonfiction — we’re seeing visionary new directors emerge and streaming has given documentary films wide new global audiences,” said Bryn Mooser, co-founder of Documentary+ and CEO of XTR. “With Documentary+, not only are we building a home for some of the best documentary films of our time, but we’re giving filmmakers another option for distribution as competition continues to increase. The COVID pandemic created this great digital acceleration and we are building Documentary+ to be a key cornerstone in the future of the industry.”
Documentary+ has a collection of films including classics like The Imposter, Born into Brothels, Cartel Land, My Best Fiend, and Life, Animated, and features pop culture icons like Michael Jordan (One Man and His Shoes), Christian Dior (Dior and I), Evel Knievel (Being Evel), Janis Joplin (Festival Express), and Pearl Jam (Hype!), and many more.
The platform will also be scoping out this year’s Sundance Film Festival in search of new titles to add to its library. You can stream Documentary+ for free on all streaming platforms including Apple TV, Amazon, Roku, mobile devices, and more.
