For all you movie lovers, well, the ones who subscribe to LoveFilm, there will be the opportunity to get an exclusive look at the upcoming Facebook flick Catfish before anyone else, as LoveFilm has teamed up with Momentum Pictures to stream the feature online, 3 days before its general release.

On 14 December at 6.30pm members will be able to watch the acclaimed documentary either on LoveFilm's website, or in one of 40 cinemas across the UK.

Backed by the UK Film Council, the event will be followed by an interactive Q&A, giving the online audience a chance to quiz the filmmakers (Henry Joost, Nev Schulman and Ariel Schulman) about the film.

In a statement regarding the event, LoveFilm editor Helen Cowley said, "It is our most ambitious event yet. We are bringing a great new documentary directly to our members' front rooms," According to Cowley, the event is providing members with "an innovative new way to participate in our live interactive webchat and quizzing some of the film industry's hottest talent." Concluding, "This screening marks the expansion of our relationship with Momentum."

Momentum managing director Xavier Marchand added, "What better platform to launch a movie that unravels the dark mysteries of Facebook than a multi-tiered online and offline release - the biggest exclusive premiere we have entered into with LoveFilm. It gives us the opportunity to make our latest releases easily accessible to film lovers across the UK."

Catfish - released 17 December - tells the tale of a male photographer who builds a long-distance relationship with a girl on Facebook.
