Instead of binge-watching the new Netflix shows, you can binge watch carefully selected independent, foreign and classic films on Fandor. Until Monday, a year pass will only cost you $45 (that's $3.75 / month).
More and more viable streaming destinations are popping up, but Fandor has distinguished itself as a leader in closed platform on-demand streaming for quality independent film. Not only do they have a diverse and deliciously esoteric collection, but they return half of all their revenue to the rights holders of the films they stream. Run by Larry Aidem (former Sundance Channel head), Fandor has a rapidly evolving collection of contemporary independent films, making it a sought after destination for filmmakers to submit to. On a limited basis, they also have access to Criterion's extensive collection of must-see cinema.

Ultimately, if you're truly a movie lover, a subscription to this platform is a no brainer. At $45/year, this holiday sale (ending tomorrow!) only sweetens the deal.
