FilmFish

Sick of searching for what to watch? You’re not alone. The average American spends the equivalent of a month of 40 hour work weeks trying to figure out what to watch next.

At FilmFish, our vision is to recommend shows and movies just for you—based on what you love, and what you can watch for free. We’ve developed a proprietary machine learning algorithm that scales human curation to make over 1.2 million high quality recommendations, based on your favorite shows and movies, and your streaming platforms.

To this end we’ve assembled an all-star team of entertainment and tech experts. Our team members have starred in multiple blockbusters (Topher), produced a Netflix series on El Chapo (Daniel), reviewed movies with Roger Ebert (Joyce), founded a Y-Combinator start-up (Simon), and taught at MIT (Don and David).

All so you can search less, and watch more.
