PLAYA VISTA, Calif., October 18, 2017 (Newswire.com) - PASSIONFLIX, a new premium streaming service focused on the romance genre, launched Sept. 1. The service, which caters to the multi-billion dollar romance novel community has forged relationships with the top romance authors in the world to create feature film adaptations of best-selling romance novels.
NY Times Best Seller, Alessandra Torre's, Hollywood Dirt, kicks off a series of sought-after feature film adaptations, exclusively available on PASSIONFLIX. Hollywood Dirt, starring Emma Rigby and Johann Urb, is available alongside a multitude of romantic classics such as Roman Holiday, Somewhere in Time, Pride & Prejudice and Wuthering Heights; to modern classics The Thomas Crown Affair, Moonstruck, and Sabrina to name a few. Using the platform's "Barometer of Naughtiness" a subscriber can select from 1 to 5, promising something for every mood.
I think woman have a unique way of looking at the world, and we have an opportunity with PASSIONFLIX to focus on the female gaze as filmmakers. Most movies and series are made with the male gaze in mind (intentional or not). These stories and this platform seek to undo or change that. We want you to look at love from our perspective: Connection, sensuality, and communication to start.
Tosca Musk, PASSIONFLIX Founder
