Wes Anderson has helped launch a new digital film club, along with guest curators Ethan Hawke and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Indian Paintbrush, Anderson’s long-time associate producer, has unveiled Galerie, a digital hub offering subscribers access to original videos, in-depth essays and live events led by leading filmmakers. Galerie will feature a rotating selection of curators who will “guide you as you broaden and deepen your journey through film alongside a vibrant community where everyone is invited to exchange ideas and expand their knowledge.”
“Great cinema is all around us, but in this ever-changing landscape it can be hard to find by navigating through algorithms,” reads the website’s description. “We envision Galerie as an oasis inhabited by people who value substance over abundance, where curiosity can thrive and meaningful conversation has room to grow.”
Other confirmed contributors include Taylor Russell, Mike Mills, Ed Lachman, Karyn Kusama, Ari Wegner and Duke Johnson. Subscriptions cost $10 a month. Commenting on the club, Indian Paintbrush founder Steven Rales said: “In the midst of the media clutter that overwhelms us all, we are delighted to present Galerie as a unique sanctuary to discover film in a different way. “Galerie offers an opportunity to explore the indelible contributions of those both more and less visible in the filmmaking enterprise, as well as an avenue to converse and learn about the many attributes of this cherished medium.”
