Hulu and IFC Films Close First Ever Deal

First Documentary to Be Featured on Hulu Will Be 'King Georges

Hulu and IFC Films have closed a landmark output deal that will make Hulu the exclusive streaming home for all future documentary releases from IFC Films, which will include all documentaries from the brands IFC Films, Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight. The multi-year agreement marks the first time these documentary films will be available on Hulu within the first window following their initial release in theaters and on-demand. Future IFC Films documentaries will be available to stream through Hulu’s No Commercials and Limited Commercial subscription plans.

The first documentary feature to premiere on Hulu in-window will be “King Georges” – in theaters & on-demand Feb 26th, and available on Hulu this fall. The documentary captures Georges Perrier, the 67-year-old owner of Le Bec-Fin, one of the finest French restaurants in the country, as he prepares to sell the restaurant after more than four decades in business. City of Gold, a richly penetrating documentary odyssey that follows Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, will also become exclusive to Hulu following its theatrical release on March 11th. The film will follow Gold as he shows audiences a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America.
