Founded by Film and Broadway producer Edward Walson, CURIA is a new streaming service that helps movie lovers stop searching and start watching great movies. It provides viewers with new, specially curated collections of feature and short films each month that are organized for making faster, more informed viewing decisions. CURIA plans to be a fixture in the film festival circuit with a healthy appetite for new acquisitions, dedicating a constant collection called “The Circuit" to festival films. The “Short Stories” collection houses CURIA's ever-growing collection of shorts that are usually only seen at festivals. Other collections will rotate on a monthly basis, which allows a high level of quality and curation and eliminates the need to search. CURIA puts the viewer's mood and enjoyment at the center of the curation process, making for a fun, intuitive solution to the age-old question, “what should I watch?”
