New York-based prodco and distributor IFC Films is launching the SVOD channel IFC Films Unlimited, through Amazon Prime Video Channels, to offer titles from its distribution labels: IFC Films, Sundance Selects and genre label IFC Midnight.

The launch of IFC Films Unlimited will coincide with the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 14 to May 25, though a specific date has not been set.

The channel’s offerings will include numerous classic titles, like Errol Morris‘s iconic The Thin Blue Line, along with more recent titles like How to Survive a Plague, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work and Room 237 (pictured).

Other docs in the IFC Films library include the upcoming Framing John DeLorean, the Natalie Portman-produced Eating Animals, Killing for Love and more.

IFC has set an initial price of US$5.99 per month for the channel.

“Over our nearly 20-year history, we’ve been fortunate to have established a rich library of the best in independent film and we thought the time was right to create an IFC Films-branded platform,” said Lisa Schwartz, IFC Films co-president, in a statement. “Bringing together a broad collection of films that span our many labels and genres, IFC Films Unlimited will be a general entertainment destination for specialty film fans.”
