New Spotlight Section: Film Movement

Our latest special spotlight rental section focuses on FILM MOVEMENT, a distributor of critically acclaimed award-winning independent and foreign films both theatrically and on home video. This section from their mission statement particularly resonates with us and our simple but strong pursuit to unite people with film: At its heart, Film Movement is a grassroots direct-to-consumer company with a dedication to getting great films seen by as many people as possible, and providing intelligent, beautiful and compelling art to an ever-growing community of consumers who want more than the standard Hollywood fare. We've gathered almost 100 of our favorite shorts, documentaries, and features on DVD from Film Movement and put them together for your perusal in a special rental section. You'll find it to the right of the staircase just before the Actor's Spotlight & Second Take sections.� Here's a taste of what you'll find there:
