The business platform for digital media

Documentaries from Down Under

Nov 06, 2013

Helping to sustain quality, independent voices in the cacophony that is 21st century media is near and dear to our heart here at Tinypass and one of the most effective means for such voices to express themselves is through film, particularly documentaries.

In a crowded marketplace there is no guarantee that the most deserving documentaries will find the light of day.  Someone has to make sense of the flood of fact-based films, i.e. the curator, and that’s where one of our newest partners comes in, Australian-based beamafilm – see

Beamafilm is an independent movie-streaming site created by a group of filmmakers, distributors and video on demand specialists.  The site is unique for its collection of signature Australian docs as well as films from around the world, many of which are only available through beamafilm.

Employing the flexibility of the Tinypass platform, beamafilm offers a host of viewing options, including a seven-day free trial, a $12.99 per month recurring subscription, and “pay-per-play” 48-hour rentals for $2.99 to $4.99.  The site also provides members of Australia’s public library system free access to its film collection.  Welcome aboard to our latest partner from Oz!
