Introducing Flixa, a new streaming service dedicated to female filmmakers

We’re stoked to announce the entry of Flixa into the broad world of streaming platforms. Flixa is a not for profit company that specifically supports women film-makers, something that sets it apart from the likes of Stan and Netflix.

Flixa has an array of quirky and obscure films, TV shows, and documentaries to choose from. The Australian streaming service offers a monthly subscription that promotes and supports female film-makers, directors and creatives in order to create a positive change in the film industry. The company is proudly led by women visionaries and filmmakers who are all about creative risk-taking, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Australian company Flixa aims to change the male-dominated film industry by providing a streaming service dedicated to female film-makers and creatives.

According to a study from the Centre for the Study of Women in Television and Film, women accounted for only 12% of directors of the top 100-grossing movies of 2019. And in an industry that is clearly male-dominated, only five women have ever been nominated for Best Director in the past 92 years of Oscars history.

“Cinema is a sexist, rigid and ossified system. That’s why we created Flixa,” the company stated in a recent press release. For every minute of content that is watched on the new service, Flixa will be paying the film-maker, a win-win model that increases filmmakers’ pay-out as the service grows.

Members will not only be treated to high-quality content but also play a major role in supporting female filmmakers, especially the ones who face bias in race, class, disability and geography.
