New York, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
NEW YORK, NY September 25, 2012: Festival of Films Blog, the newest project of Festival of Films, a popular free movie website that lets you stream independent movies, has grown its new Blog section to include more reviews of popular and independent films. Visitors will find insightful movie reviews of intelligent and emotionally charged films, written by passionate movie buffs and newcomers to film criticism. The Editorial Team of the free movie site’s blog has grown several-fold since launching in May of 2012, and continues to add more writers on regular basis.
The Festival of Films Blog is geared toward everyone, regardless of his or her experience in film criticism. This is reflected in its diverse team of writers, which consists of both regular movie critics as well as amateurs taking their first crack at public writing. In just four months, its contributor list has increased several-fold; authors post on a variety of topics, including movie reviews on independent geek films, and for more critical audiences, detailed movie industry analysis.
Contributors are encouraged to speak in their own voices and to let their creativity flow, free of pretense or fear of appearing unprofessional — because they aren't professionals. And that is the Festival of Films Blog's greatest strength: its large, inclusive community of moviegoers and film enthusiasts. Newcomers and Blog patrons and encouraged to leave comments, in the spirit of extending the discourse in the growing movie review community.
The Festival of Films staff realizes the value of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as evidenced by their burgeoning profiles on those sites. To showcase the newest feature on the Festival of Films Blog, the site is encouraging Twitter users to take full advantage of its weekly Movie Caption Contest, where film aficionados participate to win free movie tickets from the site’s regular drawings, billing the opportunity as a “Make-a-Meme Contest” in a recent tweet.
The Festival of Films Blog is casting a wide net in hopes of growing its community. “We provide a fresh voice to the everyday moviegoer who often feels shut out when reading traditional film reviews," noted Damian Geminder, Festival of Films Blog Managing Editor. "Too often, people will read a high-profile critic's review and say to themselves, 'Just who does he think he is?' Our goal is to encourage our readers to participate in a discussion about film so that they feel they are just as much a part of the forum as the people writing the posts. No one is discouraged from writing for us, no matter his or her qualifications — or lack thereof."
