Vimeo Partners with LGBTQ Film Distributor, Adds Over 150 New Titles
Vimeo has partnered with LGBTQ film distributor Wolfe Video to make its entire collection available on Vimeo on Demand.
In addition to offering over 150 films from Wolfe’s library, Vimeo is powering the distributor’s website, WolfeOnDemand.com, and its sell-through platform, WolfeVideo.com. This means that viewers can rent or buy videos directly from Wolfe’s websites through Vimeo, to watch on Vimeo’s player on any connected device.
Wolfe’s library includes films like “Desert Hearts,” a lesbian romance story from Donna Dietch; “Undertow,” a Sundance audience award winner that follows a married fisherman and his gay lover; “Cloudburst,” which stars Olympia Dkakis and Brenda Fricker; and “I Am Divine,” a movie about the drag star Divine.
Additionally, Wolfe and Vimeo have made feature-length drama “The Circle” available on demand for the first time. The film, set in Zurich in 1958 and surrounding the gay organization/club for which the movie is named, was the Swiss selection at both the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. It’s going for $3.99 to rent and $14.99 to purchase.Tags: divine, lgbtq, the circle, Vimeo, Vimeo On Demand, wolfe video
