On Journal, our mission is to get more films, big and small, onto your watchlists, spotlight the best writing on Letterboxd, and bring you news from behind our scenes. Along the way, we dig deeper into the movies we’re obsessed with, meet the people who make them, and examine the culture that surrounds them.
All of this from a stable of regular contributors and special guests who, like you, share a love of watching, writing about and obsessing over films.
We are endlessly interested in what Letterboxd stats tell us about films and the people who watch them; if you are too, you’ll like our Community section—as well as covering aggregated community reactions here, we enjoy shining a light on Letterboxd members from across the globe, who use the platform in interesting ways.
We love holding space for writers who are curious about weird trends, sensitive to cultural considerations, or driven to personal reflection by a particular film, filmmaker or genre (Big Picture). We adore talking to filmmakers, and sometimes giving you the chance to ask them your own questions (Interview; Life in Film). And we are always up for revisiting a movie that has grown in critical or cultural regard over time, especially where Letterboxd’s community is concerned (Deep Impact).
Plus, we’ll still share updates from behind the scenes (Platform), along with timely curation pieces, seasonal previews, trailer-unpackings and more (Cinemascope). We are open to pitches, and on occasion will throw out a specialist submission invitation of our own.
