At Filmatique we believe in curation over content and quality over quantity. In the endless stream of contemporary cinema, even masters are hard to find.

We were, frankly, amazed at how many of our films — by Lars von Trier, Hong Sangsoo, Miguel Gomes, Carlos Reygadas, Roy Andersson, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, and Bruno Dumont — aren't available anywhere else, and felt it necessary to give them a special highlight. This program will rotate some titles you can only find on a service as dedicated to contemporary cinema as Filmatique.
