)-- The Filter, the leading recommendation solution for digital content, today announced a new strategic partnership with Los Angeles-based online movie retailer Film Fresh which will deliver personalized and relevant recommendations to the site’s users.
Film Fresh offers a unique blend of Hollywood and independent movies from emerging and established directors that take viewers away from the beaten track and invite them to “refresh their relationship to film.” The Filter’s technology presents users with the most relevant recommendations available anywhere. This is what makes The Filter a particularly good match for Film Fresh, since its intelligent recommendations help users discover titles that they love but would not otherwise have found.
"Online film delivery has come a long way, but film discovery remains the Holy Grail,” says Rick Bolton, CEO and Founder of Film Fresh. “There are thousands of titles available, but how do you lead audience members to specific films that match their interests? Film Fresh is particularly interested in this challenge. The Filter’s film recommendation technology is many things: exciting, forward-thinking, even visionary. It is also an indispensable part of our efforts at Film Fresh. "
The partnership between Film Fresh and The Filter brings together two highly innovative companies to deliver relevant recommendations and connect movie fans to the content they love at the right time, in the right place and in the best way possible.
