Rdio is pleased to join the San Francisco Film Society as the exclusive Music in Film partner for the San Francisco International Film Festival (April 23-May 7, 2015), providing the soundtrack to the festival and serving as the official presenter for Cibo Matto’s “Live and Onstage” program on May 5 at the historic Castro Theatre.
"Music and film have always been perfectly inextricably bound,” says Rdio CMO Marc Ruxin. “Finding and sharing the music that inspired the film, or that was used as a soundtrack has always been an expensive and challenging proposition. Rdio is providing the tools for directors, editors and actors to create new content around films that makes it easy to share and promote around.”
