Our community on Moviepilot loves to discover. Not only is it fun, but it allows them to find exciting new movies. Two months ago, we released a new discovery bar to improve the Moviepilot experience in two key areas: access and navigation. We’d like to invite you backstage, and let you in on how things are working out. Hint: We’re quite happy.
Here at Moviepilot Labs, we work tirelessly to see you find that “next perfect movie”. Incremental improvements is our day to day MO, but sometimes big leaps are are needed to get greater results. In this case, our team decided to start from scratch and rethink a whole new approach to discovering movies. Let’s break it down:
Jon Handschin, CPO and co-founder of Moviepilot, was invited to join the International Media Convention as part of IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany. The event was held on Tuesday and addressed the issue of ‘smart cinema’ and how social media is changing the film industry. Jon was part of a panel discussion that included renowned industry professionals, including Marco Kreuzpaintner (Director, Founder and CCO of Summerstorm Entertainment); Kasten Aurich (Managing Director at Sabotage Films) and Oliver Damian (Producer/Managing Director at 27 Films Productions).
We’ve reached over 6 million fans in the US, so it’s about time that we have more of a presence there. We’re excited to announce that this month we’ve opened our first office in the Stateside! Situated in the heart of Los Angeles, we’re that much closer to where all the movie action and magic happens.

Ever wonder what Moviepilot Labs, the headquarters for Moviepilot, is like? Sure you might be seeing some glimpses here and there, but what’s it really got going? We know we don’t have the most conventional-looking offices around, and frankly, we think they suit our unique, laid-back vibe. And what makes our Moviepilot Labs team really love this place? In a word: Style.
