MovieMaker’s content is directed at the audience as well as the artist, and its lively mix of interviews, trend-setting criticism, DIY techniques, festival coverage, distribution and financing tips, behind-the-scenes indie “war stories” and appreciations of classic Hollywood actors, directors, cinematographers, producers, screenwriters and editors makes MovieMaker Magazine a perennial favorite and trusted brand with cinema artists and discriminating film fans everywhere.
MovieMaker Magazine was founded by Timothy Rhys in Seattle, WA in 1993, and he remains publisher and editor-in-chief. The magazine’s growth over the past 20-plus years has paralleled the explosion of independent cinema as an art form and perhaps the most populist form of artistic expression among young people.
Currently based in Santa Monica, CA, MovieMaker Magazine has an international five-times yearly distribution of 44,000, a readership of more than 160,000 and a direct print subscribership of more than 10,000. The magazine’s award-winning website, MovieMaker.com, is one of the most popular sites on the worldwide web and receives more than one million visitors per year. MovieMaker TV, a spinoff of the magazine, is currently in preproduction.
