Criterion Collection To Stream Select Titles On Fandor
Hulu and the Criterion Collection have struck a deal with Fandor to stream curated selections of their library. Currently, seven films are up on the streaming service, with more rolled out in the upcoming months.
The titles will come to Fandor with a specific grouped theme, similar to the themes that Criterion uses on its website. The current theme is “Expeditions” and includes Burden of Dreams, The Four Feathers, The Gold Rush, Letter Never Sent, Sanders of the River, The Wages of Fear and Woman in the Dunes.
