A New Home for Indies

Huemovies.com, a subscription streaming service offering titles by “underrepresented independent filmmakers,” is now available for $5.99 a month.

The service was founded by Clifford and Jacqueline Dunigan, who devised the name Huemovies “as a nod to the vast array of differences reflected in society, not just race, but also differences in ideas, behaviors and desires.”

One such movie is One Night Stand, a comedy written, directed and produced by Chicago native Alonzo Alcaraz in his hometown. One Night Stand is one of more than 100 films in the Huemovies library.

Here’s a trailer for One Night Stand:

Huemovies is also actively soliciting film submissions through its website, and has said it “is taking a partnership approach with filmmakers, through the development of a unique Revenue Share Optimization model (RSO) that provides filmmakers with an additional revenue stream that will help support current and future projects.”

Currently, you can view Huemovies on any Internet-connected device and on home entertainment systems using Chromecast and AppleTV (Airplay). IOS and Android applications are said to be in development.

In June, another online indie film service, Indie Premiere, launched a pay-per-view model in which subscribers could, for $4.99, rent one title for 24 hours. That same month, CineFlix on Demand, premiered its independent film subscription channel online.
