Your briefing from SPYFLIX - brought to you by SPYSCAPE

A secret to the death

On July 4th, SPYFLIX Spotlight documentary feature The Codebreaker will begin streaming. The doc sheds light on America's first female cryptanalyst, Elizabeth Friedman, whose greatest code-breaking achievement was falsely claimed by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Friedman signed a Navy oath of silence and took to her grave the truth - that she led the destruction of a major spy ring. 




Movie music secrets

SPYFLIX Festival’s sister division, SPYSCAPE Podcast Network, recently launched For Your Ears Only exclusively on Spotify. Each week influential musicians, actors and other artists discuss the secrets behind their favorite film and television music. Acclaimed British actress Jodhi May hosts the unique series which naturally features music from thrillers, spy films and iconic crime shows. Did your favorite movie music make the cut?




Much ado about nothing

A TikTok user asked followers to name their favorite parts of a show that doesn’t exist, in a 'hallucinatory' experiment. Now the non-existent series based on a non-existent book has a huge fanbase, a hashtag with two million views, merch (and knockoff merch), a subreddit and a Discord server. Ships of the Northern Fleet continues to pick up speed. 




Secrets buzz

Bob Odenkirk’s secret identity thriller Nobody was #1 on Vudu in its first week. Black Widow hits theaters and Disney+ Premier Access on July 9. Season 8 of NBC’s The Blacklist will be Megan Boone’s last. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Netflix will produce a new spy series. Tenet is now streaming on HBO Max. Speaking of, do you know the mind-bending secrets behind Tenet?




SPYFLIX Judge’s Corner: Alex Cary

We love SPYFLIX Guest Judge Alex Cary for many reasons - one being that, as a commander in the British Army, Cary saved a soldier's life during an IRA mortar attack. The Homeland E.P. is in London scouting locations for his adaptation of Ben Macintyre’s A Spy Among Friends, featuring Damian Lewis and Dominic West. Cary generously made time to chat with us.



SPYFLIX is the new film and TV festival focused on secrets. The Spotlight Series is now underway. Visit weekly to stream works selected by the talent behind hits such as Hunters, The Americans and Homeland.
