Singapore – HOOQ, the largest Video on Demand service in South-East Asia, announces that its first Indonesian original production will be screening at the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes.  This is on the back of a series of announcements from HOOQ that underscores its commitment to Asian film production through ventures with top independent studios and filmmakers in the region.


“HOOQ is very proud that Marlina will be screening at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight this year!  We look forward to many more successful HOOQ original productions that will gain recognition in the international film industry, but more importantly will keep our customers HOOQ’d month after month!  Our continued commitment to the Asian film industry will see us investing in more original productions with the goal to give new and established talents an avenue to tell their stories in multiple formats – be it a feature film or a 10-part series,” said Peter Bithos, Chief Executive Officer of HOOQ.
