WHAT IS CINEFILE?
Cinefile is a Swiss film platform founded in 2018 that operates a comprehensive movie guide, a streaming service and a DVD/Blu-Ray rental service.
The streaming selection ranges from the latest cinema hits to classics and is based on the motto "Only Good Movies": we deliberately limit the range to a maximum of 1000 entertainment and arthouse films and are constantly updating it. The five-strong selection team only selects films that are really worth seeing. All films are available in HD and original versions with freely selectable subtitles, some also in German or French dubbed versions.
The complete range is available with the free Basic registration for individual rental or in the Take 2/3/4 subscriptions, which include 2, 3 or 4 films per month or 12, 18 or 24 films per half-year with discounts of up to 50 percent.
The cinefile cinema guide offers a complete overview of the Swiss cinema program with all important information and reservation links for all films, including arthouse cinemas, film museums and open airs.
You can save all the cinema and streaming films that interest you in a personal watchlist.
