Movie lovers have a new place to learn and celebrate movie culture with Galerie, an online film club that is supported by big-name filmmakers and actors like Wes Anderson, Ethan Hawke, Maggie Gyllenhaal and more. With a digital subscription, movie fans are going to get exclusive content to further their love of the cinema.

Backed by the production company Indian Paintbrush, which has produced all of Anderson's movies since 2007, Galerie has a mission to "expand and deepen your journey through film alongside a vibrant community where everyone is invited to exchange ideas and expand their knowledge." That will be done through original videos, essays, live screenings and discussions with those making movies.

Here is what Indian Paintbrush founder Steven Rales said after launching Galerie: 

"Amidst the media clutter overwhelming all of us, we are delighted to introduce Galeria as a unique sanctuary for discovering cinema differently. Galerie offers the opportunity to explore the indelible contributions of those more and less visible in the filmmaking endeavor, as well as an avenue to converse and learn about the many attributes of this cherished medium."
