Ruia/pyotra/dhrupad and I are starting a film site akin in some ways to desistfilm and basically we are looking for regular contributors. Basically we want to focus on films that are rarely talked about especially through different angles as well as talk about film influences on other films. This can be accomplished in various ways via interviewing filmmakers or opinion pieces on the nature of film and representation right now in a certain country or etc.
The site is sort of an antidote to the narrow-minded views of the white male-domination of film critique and reviews that one regularly finds. Overall it would be a non-western/western POC focus to it and it’d be great to have a variety of people from different socioeconomic/national/etc backgrounds contribute.
Right now we are looking are aiming to get a custom domain via wordpress which would be split up in cost. If anyone is looking an outlet to regularly write but also be part of a community of writers and get feedback and other’s opinions when it comes to writing on film, please feel free to message either of us! If you are also interested in contributing from time-to-time you are also welcome to do so.
