Review

10-20 pages for film writing. For film writing (and/or television writing), we are not looking for evaluative “reviews”; rather, please send essays that engage with cinema in a unique and/or personal way. We want writers who are aware of the greater cultural, aesthetic, and social significance of their subject, be it domestic, international, avant-garde, classic, or contemporary cinema. We will also consider pieces on television, video art, viral videos, Vines, or any of the other alternative forms that moving images might take.
