Call for Writers: CineMatiq Magazine

CineMatiq Magazine, a new quarterly publication created to bring readers a unique and distinct perspective in cinema and beyond, is searching for writers. The magazine’s main focus is bringing the reader a unique and distinct perceptive on Black LGBT images in cinema but also highlighting the filmmaker and their experience making a film about the black LGBT experience. CineMatiq also features how to articles, film and film equipment reviews and resources for filmmakers.

Writing for CineMatiq is open to everyone, gay or straight, and they highly encourage people of color to apply. To be considered, please send a writing sample and link to your work for review by visiting the website and clicking on the “Submissions” link.

Angel L. Brown, founder, says, “Creating CineMatiq Magazine was a natural step for me. I had the idea in my head since the launch of Queer Black Cinema film series in 2006. It was a matter of time and experience learning the film business and becoming a leading resource/consultant of Black LGBT cinema. Launching CineMatiq was another way for me to give back to the community creating a platform in print, archiving film critique for people to discussion and debate for generations long after I leave this earth.”

CineMatiq Magazine will be a quarterly online publication available for download for $4.95. It will feature indie and mainstream filmmakers on the cover. Content will include everything from film reviews to equipment suggestions and production advice columns.
