I launched Cinedelphia back in January as a necessary resource for repertory film listings in the Philadelphia area. Since then, the site has grown to include film reviews, local film-related features, contests, lots of stuff…so much stuff in fact that this site’s visitor stats have continuously increased month after month to the point where I’m now looking for outside help to generate worthwhile content related to the Philadelphia film community on a more regular basis. So this is an open call for film reviewers, article contributors, and film listing assistants that are interested in lending a hand while I concentrate on the site’s long form community-related articles. Interested parties should have some sort of connection to the Philadelphia film community or should have some sort of niche interest/discipline (MMA fighters, satanists, child musical prodigies…the weirder the better). I’m especially interested in informed critiques of local nonprofits, film festivals, and educational institutions as well as historical accounts of Philly film-related happenings. And yes, there are opportunities to see films in advance for free, but you’ve gotta have writing chops to join that crew so if that’s what you’re interested in then be sure to send me some writing samples.
So to summarize, I’m interested in hearing any article ideas you may have. One-time contributions are just as welcome as regular ones; the ultimate goal is to consistently cover film-related happenings in this city, which are just too numerous for a single person to handle.
