Q: Who can write for Film Inquiry?

A: Everyone can! However, if you’re a filmmaker, a film student or an academic who does interdisciplinary study of film (like our Editor in Chief, who has combined criminology and film study), we’re particularly interested, and we encourage you to apply!

Q: How long should articles be?

A: We don’t work with word counts. Articles should be as long or short as they need to be, to be in-depth and to cover the matter in an exploratory, elaborate and non-repetitive way. For example, we’ve published reviews of 700 words, but also of 2000 words. We have published Resources that are over 7000 words. Our trailer posts usually aren’t longer than 300. You get the point.

Q: Can I publish whatever I want?

A: We are very eager to hear your ideas! We appreciate every individual’s insights into film, as experiencing film is inherently subjective of nature – you take your personal experiences and knowledge along for every film you see. However, we do require you to pitch any idea you might have to the editors before you submit an article.

Q: Is this paid?

A: At this time, no. Film Inquiry is relatively new in internet terms, and does not yet generate enough money to pay anyone. But we’re working very hard on changing that. If you value people getting paid for their hard work, consider getting a Film Inquiry Society membership, because advertising just doesn’t generate enough revenue anymore these days.
