Subscriptions to this film streaming platform doubled during lockdown. Founder and chief executive Efe Cakarel, 44, started Mubi in San Francisco in 2007, before moving it to London in 2009. It now also has offices in New York, Kuala Lumpur and Mumbai, and allows members in more than 190 countries to choose from a curated, country-specific film selection. It showcases cult classics and work by emerging independent directors, as well as films by renowned industry names such as Martin Scorsese. A new title is added to the platform every day, with recent hits including Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Sales reached £9.6m last year, and it has raised £30,000 to help independent cinemas and festivals through its #DearVirus campaign.
