MUBI has an offer any cinephile can’t refuse: three full months of access to their hand-curated “online cinema” all for a dollar. That’s fifty pesos in our money. Obviously a steal.

If you’ve been meaning to cop your own MUBI subscription, now is the time to get it.

MUBI offers 3 months of great, hand-picked cinema for just $1

As of this writing, there are still films directly imported from last year’s Berlinale, like Antonella Sudasassi Furniss’ “The Awakening of The Ants”, Suhaib Gasmelbari’s “Talking About Trees“, and Bernd Schoch’s “Olanda”.

To the uninitiated, it’s fair to call MUBI something like Netflix, but with great classic, foreign, and independent cinema. But it’s also drastically different in its presentation, and for that matter kind of special. Titles only appear for 30 days. Meaning, you only have a month to watch anything you think you might like, making their self-branding of “online cinema” apt.

Regular-priced membership plans cost $10.99 per month (upwards of 500 pesos). You can also pay annually at $95.88 per year (approximately 5,000 pesos).
