What is Streamlined?

Streamlined is a newsletter that summarises and analyses events in the film & streaming content industries outside of the Americas and Europe - i.e. Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East.

While these regions do get covered by the US trades, this coverage often gets lost in the firehose of Hollywood and Europe-focused content. Streamlined delivers a periodic overview in an easily digestible format, along with original reporting, all in one place.

Streamlined’s ethics policy

Streamlined is also an attempt to create a publishing model that is free from the influence of advertising. When and if Streamlined ever enters into a commercial partnership, that relationship will be clearly explained. Streamlined doesn’t cover a topic because it’s being paid to do so by a film festival or film commission.

Why subscribe?

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. New editions of the newsletter will be sent directly to your inbox. Streamlined will take a break over Christmas and during the summer between Cannes and the autumn festival season.

Streamlined wants your feedback!!

Streamlined is written for readers, not advertisers, and subscribers will help shape the content as the publication grows. Please comment if you agree or disagree with any of the content; please send us scoops from your part of the world; and please advise us on the kind of information and analysis you’d like to see.
