In brief...

So you've got an opinion and you're not at all afraid to express it, and are able to do so eloquently enough with words, AND you'd like an opportunity to do so on a grand stage, readily accessible to countless scrutinizing eyeballs all over the world?

Well, you're in luck! 

What some of you may not realize is that I'm wide open to submissions; there's the day-to-day news coverage (which is well-handled here for the most part), but I'm looking to beef up the site's offerings with more originally-created work - from film reviews, to op-eds, to critical essays, etc, etc, etc; even video content.

So if you've got the goods, and are interested, send me an email (obensont@gmail.com) with what you've got to offer, and the longer discussion will continue from there. 

And by the way, this is open to anyone anywhere in the world; not just Stateside; I would especially love to hear from those of you outside the USA, or who specialize in cinema in other parts of the Diaspora.

But it's open to all! So don't be afraid. At least inquire if there's even the least bit of interest.

Got it!

    I am interested. Like all writers I think I have a unique narrative style and interesting, well thought out points of view. Plus, i have film studies background and years devloping film literacy and pitch projects. I am unclear about the application process though...

    Do we take the silence not just as a no, but as a hell no? I'm wondering if any of you all received a response.. I think J and I need closure so we can grieve and move on

    It's a NO! I guess we have to move on at this point. It would be really nice to receive a response.
