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 November 2018 issue of Cult Critic Magazine. It seems almost unnatural how fast the year flew by. We didn't even manage to turn around and here we are, at the end of another year. So what does the end of the year bring for the filmmakers? Does anything change or maybe even end? Certainly, many things are coming to close, but what's even more certain is that every end brings a new beginning. One finished film only means filmmakers can start working on a new one. Start a new story, write it down, find the right actors and finally, put another piece of art in their rich collection. Endings are wonderful because they bring even more opportunities. And we're certain the close of this year will bring more opportunities for every one of us.
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!
