Streamthings is a startup created in April 2020 to push forward the boundaries of the cinematic and audiovisual content available online. Streamthings manages streeen.org, a streaming service offering a wide selection of arthouse and independent movies curated in partnership with the no profit association Streeen-Lab. The Streamthings staff handles the entire online distribution process, from acquisition to publication and promotion.
In the last year, Streamthings has hosted several events and festivals that decided to migrate online due to the pandemic. This allowed the Italian and international audience to have access to programs that normally have limited space in the regular Italian theaters and that often focus on marginalised communities. The promotion of socially and artistically significant movies by female directors, as well as of productions working towards an attentive representation of the LGTBQ+ community, is a major goal of Streamthings’ editorial strategy.
