Film & Broadway Producer Edward Walson Launches Arthouse & Classics SVOD Platform Curia, Will Be Shopping At Cannes

Exclusive: One week after we brought you news of his app Erupt, today we can reveal that film and Broadway producer Edward Walson (Blue Jasmine) is launching Curia, a curated film streaming SVOD platform.
