Fandor, the indie and international cinema streaming platform, is turning a new page — and “for better or worse, the new strategy is not for everyone,” admitted Fandor CEO Larry Aidem.
Earlier this week, the company closed Keyframe, its 5-year-old digital magazine, and two of its longtime staffers left the company: editorial director Jonathan Kiefer
and David Hudson
, who ran Keyframe Daily and whom, in his recent New York Times profile of Fandor, Glenn Kenny
praised as a “great asset.”
“When I started at Fandor in 2012, and for several years afterwards, we were a good match, what with our shared sense of cinephilia and appreciation for timeliness,” Hudson said. “As Fandor evolves, its editorial focus is changing, and at this point, it’s best for me and the company to amicably part ways. I truly wish them well and hope that they achieve the growth they’re after.”
