Welcome Independent Film Fans and Fellow Filmmakers
My name is Helen Wheels, and I'm the Editor in chief here at Cult Critic. I got my start in film by accident when I returned to college. What started as a degree in theater, quickly turned to cinema as I discovered the magic of filmmaking.
Once I got a taste of seeing my words come to life through actors, cinematographers, set, and sound designers, I was hooked. These days I take great pleasure in supporting other filmmakers while I continue to hone my skills as a screenwriter.
I took a position as a writer and jury member with Cult Critic in 2017 and am honored and excited to take on this new position as editor in chief.
You may have noticed a few changes lately in the way our articles are laid out. Not to mention our new addition to the monthly reviews and interviews we've done for the past few years, "The Winner's Circle."
Our goal with the new column is to highlight a few of our favorites from our Cult Critic Movie Award film festival winners. Of course, we'll still offer you the full reviews of the award-winning films that we always have and that our fans have come to expect.
Here's the thing —
You're going to see even more great reviews in the coming months as our writing staff is growing, and the number of film submissions continues to rise.
Plus, we have other exciting new columns on the horizon, updates to many of our filmmaking pages, and a new look for the magazine.
With so many things to look forward to, we hope you'll subscribe to Cult Critic and keep updated on all the news.
One more thing —
We're thrilled to have you as part of our community!
