There's a whole world of film out there. Welcome to it.
Telescope Film promotes international film to American audiences. Thanks to digital distribution, American audiences now have unprecedented access to films from around the world. At Telescope Film, our mission is to connect those films with the people who want to watch them — and to help that audience grow.
Telescope Film is powered by a database of over 600,000 international films and series, with click through access to more than 200 streaming services. We also offer curation, customization, and a community of film fans. In addition to the main site, there are dedicated microsites for individual countries, regions, and festivals.
How It Works
There are many ways to use the site. BROWSE ALL FILM with the button in the header, and filter by streaming service, country, language, genre and more. Or enter a search term in the search window. Find a film you want to watch? Just click through to the streaming service of your choice.
Check out the homepage to see what's POPULAR IN STREAMING or NEW IN STREAMING. TELESCOPE RECOMMENDS are some of our favorite films from around the world. SPOTLIGHT presents a selection of films based on a different theme each week.
