In an effort to spotlight Black filmmakers, Cineplex debuted the 'Understanding Black Stories' initiative which offers free online access to its curated list of movies. Notable titles include 'Get Out,' 'The Color Purple,' 'Moonlight,' 'Malcolm X,' 'Selma,' 'Just Mercy,' and 'Hidden Figures,' among others.
“In a time when many are turning to movies to become informed and empowered, we want to help. This collection of important films was curated to elevate Black stories, artists, and filmmakers and spark discussion. These films are available to view at no cost,” Cineplex wrote on its website.
The Understanding Black Stories collection is available for the week and Cineplex reported it would be covering the royalty cost of each film.
