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 April issue of Cult Critic Magazine. Someone might say April is just another month in the year. What could possibly happen in the month we start with fool's jokes? And really, it's more likely the days will pass and we'll enter May silently without even noticing "the month of the fool" passing by. But, at the same time, there's something unique to April, same as there's something unique to every month of every year. In this month, unique movies are made, intriguing stories are written and new fictional characters are brought to life by creative filmmakers around the world. These works of art won't be created in any other month than April. And yes, you might think what's so special about that. It's the ongoing chance that in April we'll see a new star born. Nobody guarantees it, but if it happens, it will be magnificent.
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!
