“We help niche audiences discover what’s new they’ll love, using our unique recommendation engine and tagging system,” says Sanjay Singh, Founder. Singh believes that fans shouldn’t be limited to content similar to what they’ve already watched, and that the best content discovery happens when viewing habits are occasionally challenged. nukhu allows fans to browse a diverse selection of nuvees spanning a wide range of human expressions, from the best up-and-coming and established storytellers. This year’s semi-finalists come from international cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Burbank, San Diego, San Francisco, Paris, Manchester, Madrid, Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Budapest, Cairo, Kyiv, Taipei, etc. .
Now in its seventh year, nukhufest is an annual arts festival that complements the streaming platform and is held each fall in New York City. All nuvees that are completed and submitted within the past year are eligible to participate in nukhufest, where winners are determined by online voting. The top 10 nuvees with the most votes by September 24, 2022 will become this year’s finalists and appear on billboards in Times Square and digital ads across the United States. The finalist who receives the most votes by October 1 will be declared the 2022 Best Nuvee Winner and received the nukhu ball award and a cash prize of $3,000 at the annual closing ceremony in downtown New York. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films by September 17.
Creating a nukhu account and joining the community only takes a few minutes and is non-binding (visit nukhu.com/landing). Nuvees start at just ten cents, allowing anyone to watch what they want, when they want – there’s even a free, ad-supported viewing option. “We believe in supporting storytellers who push boundaries and making their work accessible to everyone, regardless of their means. This is the culture we aim to foster and enable with nukhu,” says Singh.
