CULT CRITIC FILM MAGAZINE: THE DIGITAL VOICE FOR FILMMAKERS AND FILM LOVERS

Being the new kid on the block always draws a certain amount of scrutiny from any prospective new readership. That's why the publishing staff at Cult Critic Film Magazine feels as though we have much to prove to earn your respect. We're a collective of international filmmakers, multimedia artists, academics and business professionals who have come together to bring you the indie film experience from all aspect of the industry.

So maybe it's nothing new. But from our perspective, the emerging filmmaker has a lot to grapple with and not much support in an ever commercializing industry. So we hope that we're starting off on the right foot by building a complete support mechanism. One that encourages the the filmmaker to stay in touch with his or her 'inner' artist, while still making an impact on their professional development and economic sustainability.

Cult Critic Film Magazine believes that the past accomplishments of great filmmakers are what the future greats will take from and make their own. In this month's edition we're proud to publish a five part biographical series on Pier Paolo Pasolini by Film Historian Miguel Ángel Barroso as he presents excerpts from his book. We're always proud to feature Calcutta International Cult Film Festival, an affiliate of Cult Critic by highlighting some noteworthy independent film selections from around the globe.

Thank you Dear Reader for joining us this month! We hope you'll make it a healthy habit!
