A couple of people have asked me here on the blog and in person about Rarefilmm and if I know anything about the status of the site. Thanks to a message from my friend Kristina over at Speakeasy, who saw this Tweet from @rarefilmm:
Happy new year, everybody! I will see you guys again on January 27th for the grand re-opening of rarefilmm. Salud!
This is exciting news indeed! We don’t know what the site will look like or how much it might cost to access it, but for many hard-to-find films, this is a great resource. When I know more, I’ll be sure to pass it on, so stay tuned.
Oh, and Happy New Year!
UPDATE: It would seem that Rarefilmm is now RareFilm.net. There’s not much information there (no “About Us”), but there seems to be many films that apparently available to download and not to stream. I have not used the new service. If you have, please let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
