“A haven for indie gems!” — The New York Times
"A cornucopia of international movies and documentaries… its spectrum of new movies is far more substantial than that of Netflix, wider-ranging than that of Amazon Prime." — The New Yorker
“The size of Ovid’s library and the frequency of new entries is impressive, as is the solid web and mobile app experience… Indie and arthouse films that aren’t easily found elsewhere.“ — P.C. Magazine

"I am overwhelmed by the range and creativity of OVID's magnificent collection. There are so many films I want to see. Do I start with the documentary about Bettie Page? Carmen and Geoffrey? Petra? The films of Marlon Riggs? Where do I begin? OVID is a director's dream site - I am honored Born In Flames is part of it."
— Lizzie Borden (Director of Born in Flames and Working Girls)
"In this time of ubiquitous taste-making through metrics, I get a good feeling just by scrolling through OVID’s collection, and touching base with audacious thinkers and makers, who have created their films without regard to the dictates of robotic programs. OVID dares to break the hegemony of ratings and dares to step away from the herd.
"A team of cinephiles with conscience and passion devote their energy to creating this invaluable collection and keeping it accessible to the public. I thank the OVID collaborators for daring to keep this project alive in our time."
— Debra Granik (Academy Award® nominee, director of Winter's Bone, Leave No Trace, and, on OVID, Stray Dog)
