Telescope Film promotes American viewership of international film through its website and marketing services. Thanks to digital distribution, the American audience now has 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.
Our online database of international film enables users to search and filter by options including title, director, country, language, and genre, and provides one-click access to all major streaming services in the US. The site also offer a variety of features to help users discover new content, including curation, a customizable user experience, and an engaged community of fans.
