Video Interviews/Video Essays
The Seventh Art now offers premium content - long-form video interviews - for $15 for an annual subscription or $1.99 per video. This $15 guarantees access to over 1300 minutes of videos, as well as all videos released in the ensuing year.
Premium videos will appear on our web site as always, however the site will only display a sample/excerpt of that video alongside a link to our subscription service (via Vimeo On Demand) in order to see the entire video.
Absolutely! Select video interviews, all podcasts, and all video essays will continue to appear on the site at no charge. Additionally, our curated video blog (Worth Viewing) will always be free.
The Seventh Art has existed since late 2011 without any funding - be it grants, sponsorship, revenue from our live events or patronage, everything has been funded out of pocket by the magazine's three producers. The cost of shooting each interview, storing our videos, putting on our own events, offering live streamed interviews and maintaining our site are consistent and growing in number.
The subscription service is a cross between subscribing to a traditional magazine, where access to content comes at a low, yearly rate, and a donation to the project, through which those who have enjoyed our content over the past two years can ensure that it continues to exist. The money raised through this service is to recoup the cost of running our video magazine and more importantly, to re-invest into the project - enabling us to expand the quality and variety of our videos, events, festival coverage and digital capabilities.
You can rent full streaming access to The Seventh Art's entire library of premium content for one year for just $15. This pass also gives you access to any premium content released through the duration of your subscription. Additionally, users can choose to buy specific interviews for just $1.99. This allows you to stream that particular interview and also download it (without any DRM protection) in order to watch the file on media players, etc.
