Barbra Streisand and Guillermo del Toro Join 40,000 Names on Petition to Save FilmStruck

Over 40,000 names have been counted on a petition to save FilmStruck, the subscription-based film streaming service. Barbra Streisand and Guillermo del Toro have pledged their commitment to the petition, and urged others to do so via Twitter.

"Please join me in signing this petition to #SaveFilmStruck!" Streisand tweeted, quoting del Toro's link to the petition.

According to Variety, FilmStruck, which contained over 1,800 contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, and foreign films, announced its closure on October 26.

Warner Media Group, owned by AT&T, plans end the streaming service on November 29 after just two years in business, claiming that, despite having "a very loyal fanbase, it remains largely a niche service," said Turner and WB Digital Networks in a statement at the time of the announcement.

Kevin Bahr, the creator of the petition, said that shutting down the service would remove "an indispensable resource for appreciating cinema" that provided access to many films that "would never see the light of a streaming platform."
