Please note: Film Comment is currently on temporary hiatus.

Like many nonprofit arts organizations responding to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our parent organization Film at Lincoln Center (FLC) has had to respond quickly and develop an intensive plan to ensure the future viability of both FLC and, by extension, Film Comment. In March, the organization initiated across-the-board salary cuts, furloughs, layoffs of some full-time staff and all part-time theater staff, and other budget and program cuts. Due to the indefinite nature of Film at Lincoln Center’s current closure, all programs of the organization have been suspended, including Film Comment. Read the full announcement here and consider supporting the future of Film Comment by donating to the FLC Emergency Fund and selecting Film Comment.

Founded in 1962, Film Comment has been the home of independent film journalism for over 50 years, publishing in-depth interviews, critical analysis, and feature coverage of mainstream, art-house, and avant-garde filmmaking from around the world. Today a bimonthly print magazine and a website published by Film at Lincoln Center, Film Comment is a nonprofit publication that relies on the support of readers. Its activities supporting film culture also include The Film Comment Podcast and regular events and talks at Film at Lincoln Center and beyond. Past and present contributing writers include Ashley Clark, Manohla Dargis, Raymond Durgnat, Roger Ebert, Manny Farber, Scott Foundas, Molly Haskell, J. Hoberman, Eric Hynes, Kent Jones, Dave Kehr, Nathan Lee, Kathleen Murphy, Sheila O’Malley, Brooks Riley, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Andrew Sarris, Amy Taubin, David Thomson, Amos Vogel, Robin Wood, and many more.
