Fandor Festival on Sling TV offers the best of the most important international film festivals such as Sundance, Austin’s SXSW, Cannes, Berlin, Rotterdam and Toronto. You can browse the films based on the festival or genres. Good news is that you can watch 5 films for free every month. We looked through the list of films and they are all great well known films from international cinema. Just to name a few good titles on Fandor Festival: 5 Broken Cameras, Armadillo, 35 Shots of Rum and many more….

On top of your monthly $20, you will also have access to movie channels or channels that occasionally show movies such as IFC, A&E, Comedy Central and AMC. With just additional $9 you can have access to six STARZ movie channels. You will find several International films on STARZ channels and in STARZ Encore you can find Oscar nominated short films to watch. HBO is $15 a month and Cinemax $10.

However, if your budget is slim, you can just add Hollywood Extra for an extra $5 and have access to seven movie channels, HD Net Movies, Turner Classic movies, Sundance TV and four Epix channels.
