tclonline.tv is an exclusive streaming site for the best in feature films and documentaries from Latin American and the Iberian peninsula. The goal of this blog is to create a community of like-minded cinema-goers who love arthouse cinema with a Latin twist, and to bring these films to a North American audience.
We’ve spent the last four years curating Latin films and slowly building up our catalogue and now that tclonline.tv is live, we are looking to increase the number of acquisitions to 12 films a year. Every year we attend the major film festivals (Berlin, Cannes, Toronto and San Sebastian) in search of the best films. TCL is a smaller company but we still feel that we have a strong and eclectic line-up of films that offer something unique.
Our competitors in the online world feel that quantity is the key, but at tclonline.tv we want you to think of the channel like a festival, where we bring the most interesting choices to you.
We’ve recently acquired some great films for distribution via our sister company Outsider Pictures, and these will be coming to TCL in coming months after limited theatrical releases in the US and Canada… some of these acquisitions include:
– “Por Las Plumas” a bromance between a man and his rooster, from Costa Rica;
– “El Verano de los peces Voladores”, the story of a bourgeois Chilean family’s Summer at their lakeside estate which played at Director’s Fortnight in Cannes and in Toronto.
We are also hoping to announce two new acquisitions during the Berlin Film Festival, which runs from February 6-16th.
Finally, one of the films on my must-see list is the third film in Tetsuo Lumiere’s sci-fi-meets-Buster Keaton trilogy, “TL3 – Quest for the Power Sphere” – there really isn’t anything else out there quite like it – check out the trailer and you’ll know what I mean!
