JERSEY CITY, NJ – August 2, 2023 – Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today announced that Vubiquity, an Amdocs company, has been selected by HERFLIX, a subscription-free online movie theater focused on films for, about and by women, to provide content acquisition and processing in order to deliver premium video on demand (PVOD) and ad-based content for their streaming service.
The film industry has historically lacked gender diversity, with limited opportunities for women directors, writers, and actors to have their work showcased on a global scale. This agreement recognizes the immense talent and creativity that exists among female filmmakers and aims to bridge the gap by offering a dedicated platform for their stories to reach a wider audience.
Vubiquity, a technology-led media services provider, holds relationships with hundreds of content creators and distributors around the globe, bringing the latest release content from major studios, leading independents, library classics and a host of genre-based categories to provide viewers with compelling content choices. As part of the agreement, Vubiquity offers a complete end-to-end solution covering content acquisition, curation and management services to support the HERFLIX platform.
Adriana Shaw, Founder & President of HERFLIX, said: “Our mission is to create a platform that not only celebrates the unique experiences and perspectives of women but also provides a voice to underrepresented storytellers. By curating and showcasing female-driven content, we aim to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and inspire audiences with narratives that resonate on a profound level. We’re pleased to work with Amdocs’ Vubiquity as we select compelling, important content for our platform.”
Anthony Goonetilleke, Amdocs Group President of Technology and Head of Strategy, said: “We’re thrilled to work with HERFLIX, which is poised to bring a diverse range of captivating films to audiences, enabling viewers to connect with stories that resonate with their own experiences and perspectives. Representation matters, and by championing female-led narratives, this partnership allows Amdocs to contribute to a more inclusive and representative media landscape that reflects the diversity of our society.”
