quietearth [Celluloid 01.07.09] news



Well folks, we're still growing at a steady clip and we've got correspondents covering London, Scotland, Toronto, LA, and New York, but we're always looking for more. Specifically: The Netherlands (especially for IFFR coverage), Berlin (for Berlinale and many other fests), as well as San Francisco (which has a large amount of fests), and any other territories. You must love the kind of film we cover, be able to write well, are dedicated, and can meet deadlines. We can't pay but you'll get into festivals for free and get to meet some cool filmmakers. Drop us a line at the contact link at the bottom of the page if interested.

Hi,
I'd be happy to be your Austin, TX correspondent. I have plenty of experience.
I am a former ( and occasional ) journalist. I spent 16 years in radio and for various parts of that time I was also in print. I started with a weekly music column in the Anchorage Daily News. More recently, I was arts editor for Man! Magazine ( circ: 44,000 ) from 1990-1993, when it folded. I am a working musician, stage actor and licensed counselor. I occasionally do spec pieces and have written puff pieces for classic rock band websites.

Please let me know, specifically, what you would need from me if I were to write for you

Hi,
I just stumbled upon this website and saw that you need correspondents. Well, I happen to live in Hungary:) Unfortunately, I have no journalist experience but I'm good at English and love the genre!
Drop me an e-mail if it's okay:)

Hello,

I would love to be a correspondent for this site. I don't study journalism or anything like that, but I do study art, which means I have to write reviews for every arty movie and exhibition I see.

And the movies you cover here are absolutely my kind of 'a good time'.


Greetings from the Netherlands

Hello,

I'm a new and avid reader of your website. BAsically you're covering with such passion and alacrity all the industry news i'd want to know about. In the few month i've been reading you, you've become my number one source of material and knowledge about all thoses thing i crave to see, be it post-ap, art house, plein weird or downright mindboggling.

I'd be honored to cover anything you'd might need in France, i'm in PAris, at the heart of anything worth happening in the industry so to say, i praise myself of being a walking bible about genre and arthouse movies, got a Master in Cinéma, and in the end i'm still First AD with CGI sfx as a specialty.

I know how to write, hold a deadline and above all spread my love of underdog or overlooked movies like peanut butter on the soft toast of the average mind.

I look forward to hear from you.
Best Regards.

Hello,

I have been volunteering at the Sitges Festival (www.cinemasitges.com) for the last two years. In the span of 11 days, I have been able to watch over 50 films, and attend press conferences and workshops by Rutger Hauer, Douglas Trumbull, Abel Ferrara, George Romero and other greats. Of course, the Red Bull cooler in the press office helped with the frantic pace. This year I will not volunteer, but would be happy to cover the festival for you as a journalist. It starts in early October, and this year, special focus in on Alien films! Keep up the good work,

Hrvoje

Allright, a friend of mine pointed this out and said I should give it a shot. I live in Holland, have done some previous journalism on IFFR, have been shown at NFF (Netherlands FilmFestival) and visited and written some thoughts on Imagine (when it was still the AFFF, Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival) twice. I know my way around the festivals here. Am a certified audiovisual designer, am into movies, into scifi and into the whole PA thing.

Writing in Dutch is one of my assets, though the English is coming along just fine. Practice makes perfect, right?

Drop a line if it seems worth the effort. Am motivated and would be pleased :).

Cheers,
Bjorn

I am a life long P.A. fan. I have a huge collection of Sci-Fi DVD's, with a ton of P.A. (a lot thanks to your site).I love your website and would do whatever is needed to help.

I live in Rotterdam and only a 10 minute walk from the city center where IFFR takes place. I must admit that I am not as qualified as others who have offered to cover IFFR, but maybe I can still help.
I am a native English speaker, have not majored in film but have taken some classes and written film analyses on a couple of films before. In any case, I am particularly interested in the types of films reviewed on this website and have also entered a short film in next year's IFFR. Whether it qualifies remains to be seen.
If my services are of any use to you, then I would be most enthusiastic about lending them.
Tadhg.

Hello Quite Earth. Been checking your site regularly for a while and feel that you are very much on my wave length. I love cinema as a whole, but hold a special place in my heart for sci-fi and post-apoc movies. I've studied film theory and history intensively for about 5 years and have been a pop culture student for as long as I can remember. I’d love to write for you and if you'd like a sample of writing I'd be happy to send something. I'm currently living in Glasgow/Scotland, but will moving to LA in June.
