Amazon’s ‘Sneaky,’ IndiePix

Amazon Prime will add streaming subscription service IndiePix Unlimited to its list of paid add-on channels some time this month, according to IndiePix Films.

For an additional $5.99 per month, Prime members will get unlimited access to more than 1,900 internationally and independently produced films that have found acclaim at Cannes, Tribeca, Venice, Sundance, SXSW, Rotterdam and other festivals. IndiePix’s library includes the 2009 Cannes Camera D’Or winner, Samson & Delilah, Iranian artist Shirin Neshat’s Golden Lion-nominated Women Without Men, and “post-apocalyptic sci-fi fable” Crumbs.

IndiePix will also soon release “nearly 50 discarded classics of African cinema through a partnership with Retro Afrika Bioscope,” which finds, restores and releases “retro” South African films from the 1970s and 1980s.

Prime members will be able to stream IndiePix through Playstation, Roku, the Amazon Video app, Amazon Fire TV, sticks and tablets and online at Amazon.com/channels. For a list of all Amazon Video compatible devices, visit www.amazon.com/howtostream.

IndiePixFilms also allows non-subscribers  to rent or buy titles via streaming, as well as purchasing “physical media.”

The Savvy Screener included IndiePixFilms in its round-up of independent streaming film services last October.

Sneaky Pete January 13

Separately Amazon Prime said it will release a full season of its original dramatic series, Sneaky Pete, on January 13.

The series’ first episode, showcased during Amazon’s pilot season last year, was the service’s most reviewed pilot, garnering more than 18,000 reviews and a 4.7-star rating, prompting an order for nine more episodes.

Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston is an executive producer for Sneaky Pete, which stars Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar, Saving Private Ryan) as Pete/Marius, who is released from prison “only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster he once robbed.” The cast also includes Marin Ireland (Homeland, Side Effects), Margo Martindale (Million Dollar Baby, The Americans) Peter Gerety (Homicide, The Wire) and Michael Drayer (Mr. Robot).

You can stream Sneaky Pete with an Amazon Prime subscription.
