CULT CRITIC: THE COLLECTIVE VOICE OF INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS OF THE WORLD
“Definition of the Independent Film is Torture with less money and time ” ― Joey Lauren Adams
Welcome to the 2019 February issue of Cult Critic Magazine. Now that we've all made peace with the fact 2018 is behind us, the time has come to look forward to the future. Unfortunately, we have bad news - a positive future won't come by itself. Everybody needs to work hard now to ensure even the slightest chance for a future we can enjoy. But, we have good news as well. You see, you're not just one step in front of us, but thousands of steps! You've been working hard all the time and the amount of submitted films proves exactly that. You've been working hard and you already made sure 2019 becomes the best year yet! And for that, we congratulate you.
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. With that, we hope we'll fulfill all our duties and although we're serious about our work, at the end of the day we can't help but smile.
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.
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 monthly edition.
On behalf of the Cult Critic Team, I wish you all the best! Move forward zealous filmmakers and with each day become better!
