Dear Movies

Dear Movies is a zine for people who love film. It’s a collection of love letters to cinema that celebrate the films we’re obsessed with, the films that made an impression, the films we can’t help but tell everyone we know about.

Write for us – Issue One: Firsts

For our first issue, we’re (predictably) exploring film firsts.

We want to hear about the first film you remember seeing or the first film that made you love movies or your first trip to the cinema. Tell us about your favourite director’s debut, the best opening scenes, and your first date cinema stories. Whatever the ‘first’, we want to know about it.

Send us your love notes, essays, short stories and poems. All types of writing are welcome.

Please note, this zine is a place for heartfelt tributes, not reviews or formal criticism. Be imaginative, make it personal, and tell us what film means to you.

Email with any ideas and questions and send finished pieces to by Sunday 20 August 2017.

Please include your name and the title of your piece in the subject line and send all pieces as a Word or Google document. When you submit, please also tell us a bit about yourself and include any details of social media handles, blogs or websites.
