SAN FRANCISCO — NakedSword Film Works (NSFW) and Breaking Glass Pictures announced today the launch of the new LGBTQ video streaming service Qreel.
Qreel focuses on stories of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer lives. From features to documentaries and progressive short films, Qreel provides a constantly expanding library of queer cinema. The service was born from a partnership between NSFW, Falcon Studios and distribution company Breaking Glass Pictures.
"Ever since NakedSword Film Works produced ‘I Want Your Love’ and we saw the popularity of the NSFW section on NakedSword.com I’ve wanted to develop a streaming video platform dedicated to offering our community powerful and engaging entertainment," said NakedSword Network and Falcon Studios President Tim Valenti. "Working with Breaking Glass Pictures on ‘Seed Money: The Story of Chuck Holmes’ and learning more about their library of content it was clear that they were a perfect partner to launch this site. Qreel.com is only the beginning. Our vision is to build Qreel into a vast media network and become the best LGBTQ entertainment media distribution service."
Rich Wolff, CEO of Breaking Glass Pictures, said, "We are so proud to be partnering with NSFW on this exciting new venture. Since our beginnings in 2009, Breaking Glass Pictures has been fully committed to the wide spectrum of LGBTQ films. We are always looking for new and creative projects that tell a story and represent every facet of the LGBTQ community. This new venture is poised to be a huge step forward in bringing these stories to a new generation of viewers. Qreel will be the ultimate ‘go-to’ streaming site for all things queer."
“Seed Money” will be available with the launch of Qreel.com along with over 100 other features and shorts.
