We're bringing our customers another great indie film experience this week. Currently available to customers on Xfinity On Demand more than a week before its DVD release is The Way, a film about a father who heads overseas to recover the body of his estranged son who died while traveling the "El Camino de Santiago." In addition to the film, customers can watch a variety of bonus content on Xfinity On Demand and XfinityTV.com as well as a free 10-minute preview of the movie. The star and director of the film, Emilio Estevez, even shared his favorite films with us — all are available for customers to watch online at XfinityTV.com.
This latest offering is part of our continued effort to work with filmmakers to bring even more indie movies to our customers through our Indie Film Club. Currently, we offer hundreds of indie films every month on Xfinity On Demand and XfinityTV.com — many available before or the at the same time they make their debut at festivals and in theaters.
Speaking of festivals, last month, I was lucky enough to attend Sundance Film Festival, the premier showcase for indie films, in Park City, Utah, a town unlike any other I've ever experienced. While at the festival, my colleague Vanessa and I went to screenings, met with film studios and industry leaders and cruised Park City's famous Main Street with the likes of Lil' Jon and Ariel Winter from "Modern Family" — which served as a real inspiration for us to continue to work hard to bring our customers access to indie films. I know many people don't get the opportunity to attend independent film festivals such as Sundance, so we will make it a priority to continue to work with indie filmmakers to broaden the reach of these films and bring the indie film festival experience right to viewers' homes so they too can take part in the world of independent film.
