“I foresee no possibility of venturing into themes showing a closer view of reality for a long time to come. The public itself will not have it. What it wants is a gun and a girl.  ― D.W. Griffith

Cult Critic Film Magazine: Top 50 Filmmaking Blog and WebsitesWelcome to the January 2018 issue of Cult Critic magazine, which is the voice of today's independent filmmakers. We wish you a Happy and a prosperous New Year hoping for more creative films this year. Our motto has always been to focus and inspire independent and newly emerging filmmakers through guided directions by sharing information from the world of Indie and Art-house filmmaking. We try to conjugate the various aspects of filmmaking with film reviews, interviews, tech tips, analysis of some cinematic legacies and detailed reports on global motion picture and digital entertainment industry. This path brings out new cinematic voices, reinforces a global culture of filmmaking with no frontiers of any kind, and promotes the passion to capture and reinvent the world through cinema. This is a long-term goal for Cult Critic and Human Lab Corporation, the company which is running the film magazine, Calcutta International Cult Film Festival and distributes independent films globally. A positive perspective is invaluable and vital in the quest for success. Last year we saw a comprehensive range of filmmakers who set a new benchmark in the world of cinema through some explicit works. This year Cult Critic Magazine welcomes all zealous and fervent filmmakers who not only fought their own battles in representing their films but also created a niche in the world of cinema.

HLC Studios conducted its first ever award event, the GOLDEN FOX AWARDS, which is the highlight of this month's issue, conducted earlier in the month of December. Receiving more than 5000 submissions from different categories in filmmaking, from 130 countries, the event screened around 75 best films. The event was attended by delegates from all over the world including France, Germany, Azerbaijan, Italy, and Norway to name a few.

With articles from professional filmmakers, Cult Critic also brings to bear the market trends in digital entertainment and filmmaking worldwide. This is more of a trade publication than a movie tabloid and thus  Cult Critic serves as a network for filmmakers to advertise, share their expertise, interact and grow within a more self-reliant and autonomous structure.

So stay tuned and enjoy this new monthly edition.

All the best,

Antonio Rozich

Publicity, Critical Review, Business Consultation

Need to know the reception of your film from the perspective of a film watcher? Want powerful publicity that will get people into festivals to watch your film and request it on Netflix? Then the Critical Review service is for you. Our reviewers are film enthusiasts who enjoy Indie films as much as Hollywood films. They’ll give your film a fair shake and tell other viewers what they liked and what didn’t work for them in a short, succinct review that’s great for press kits and marketing.


Designed for filmmakers to learn how to make better films and for a filmmaking audience. Critiques are published here at Cult Critic to provide help for both the submitting filmmakers and for our readers. Remember, these are NOT film reviews, which are for general publicity and public interest, but are instead film critiques which are done by trained filmmakers to help you make better films. Most critiques are two to four times longer than a review due to the depth and scope.
