TechCrunch and others are reporting that Netflix has announced deals with multiple independent distributors for more streaming content.

For the record, companies include some marquee names:

Criterion Collection, Gravitas Ventures, Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Oscilloscope Laboratories and Regent Releasing.

And some marquee titles:

The announcement names Departures, Wendy and Lucy, A Nos Amours, Au Revoir Les Enfents, Good Dick, As It Is in Heaven and Seraphine as key examples of the kind of content now available. Others include François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows and several films by Ingmar Bergman, including The Seventh Seal — that classic, angst-ridden film about literally playing chess with Death.
