What do gift recipients receive?
Gift recipients receive a new award-winning and acclaimed film each month to own on DVD at least a month before it is made available to the general public. Included on each DVD is a director’s statement, trailers of other Film Movement titles, and a curated short film we’ve selected to accompany the main feature film. Subscribers also receive special discounts on all DVDs and blu-rays in Film Movement’s catalog.
Who chooses the films that are sent?
Film Movement titles are chosen by an acquisitions team with over 30 years combined experience in the independent film industry. They travel around the world to the leading domestic and international film festivals, covering thousands of films to bring you the most innovative, exciting and groundbreaking award-winning pictures. We make our selections carefully, and always make sure our films are both entertaining and thought-provoking.
How do I order a gift subscription?
GIFT SUBSCRIPTIONS are given in the form of an email gift certificate. During the ordering process customers complete an email gift certificate that can be printed or emailed on the day of your choosing. This email gift certificate contains a REDEMPTION CODE that your recipient uses to start the subscription. The recipient enters their redemption code and address when redeeming the gift. Immediately after redemption the subscription will start and the first film will be mailed.
When do I enter the address of the gift recipient?
Gift givers do not enter the address of the gift recipient during the order. The recipient enters their shipping address when they redeem the gift.
Do gift subscriptions start automatically?
No. The gift recipient must use the REDEMPTION CODE that appears on their gift card to start the subscription. The redeem process is initiated on the REDEEM page of our website.
