At an exclusive event held at the Chauvel Cinema in Sydney’s Paddington, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia celebrated the launch of MUBI in ‘style’ with some very special international guests. First of all, there was the MUBI founder himself, Efe Çakarel, who commented: “Our mission is to put the excitement and discovery into the home viewing experience.” Also present at the MUBI launch was Michael Ephraim, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, who said: “MUBI is a fantastic addition to the PlayStation 3 on demand entertainment experience that stretches beyond great games and adds an exciting new layer to PlayStation Network’s film offering.”
The true star of the Aussie MUBI launch was international actress ‘Miranda Otto’ – best known to us for her role as ‘Eowyn’ in Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ franchise. Miranda sat in a panel discussion along with Efe and Michael, discussing not only the creative merits of the MUBI film service for PlayStation 3, but also praising some of the cult Australian films that are accessible via the new service.
MUBI is available in an unlimited 30 day subscription at only AUD$19.95RRP – giving you the freedom to explore and watch whatever you want, as much as you want. Or, you can be spontaneous and take your pick from across the catalogue, with individual films priced at only AUD$1.75RRP for short films and AUD$6.25RRP for feature length films, each with a 7 day entitlement.
