Discover.film has inked a deal with Huawei that will see the Discover.film platform as a preloaded app on Huawei Video, available on more than 100 million handsets globally.
“We are delighted to have been approached by Huawei looking to use Discover.film as its short film partner on Huawei Video, which re-enforces the global need for quality, entertaining short film,” says Sarah Thomson, co-founder, Discover.film. “We are thrilled to be able to support our thousands of film makers giving them such a vast distribution platform and allowing them to showcase their incredible quality short films to a global audience of millions. Especially at a time when many people are confined to their homes, we have seen a huge surge in users and particularly those looking to ‘feel good’ films during this time of crisis. As such we are accelerating our content acquisition and are in talks with many content providers to meet the needs of our ever-growing global audience.”
Sitting alongside a selection of video providers such as The BBC for its news channel and Rakuten TV for its Hollywood blockbusters, Discover.film has been chosen as Huawei’s dedicated partner for short films.
“We are very pleased to have Discover.film as one of our partners on Huawei Video,” says Ju Jian, head, global content acquisition and partnership, Huawei. “Considering that our service is on our mobile devices, Discover.film’s award-winning short movies are a perfect match as their catalogue is mobile centric.
