LAist Wants You!... To Write!... About Movies!...

Support your source for local news!
The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Picture yourself lounging on a divan surrounded by nubile, young interns fanning you with palm leaves and feeding you peeled Muscat grapes, as you type yet another hilarious stream-of-consciousness film review for Los Angeles' leading group blog.

Sound too good to be true? It isn't. It's a typical workday here at LAist headquarters, AKA Tony Pierce's lavish hilltop mansion, where the weed flows like water and the toilet paper is made of silk.

All this (and more!) could be yours. LAist is looking for a few good writers to contribute film reviews, DVD reviews, movie news round-ups, commentary, opinion pieces, interviews with filmmakers and actors, gossip tidbits and whatever other movie-themed content you can dream up. We're looking for smart, funny writers who can translate their love of film into smart, funny reviews and articles.

You will be expected to review at least one film per week, which should be no big deal if you love movies the way you should love movies to review them for LAist. But you will be able to get into press screenings to see the movies for free and in advance of their official releases. Plus there are all sorts of other cool events to go to.

If you think you've got the skills to pay the bills, check out our FAQ for potential writers. Still interested? Shoot me an email with the following info:
--your name
--a few sentences about yourself
--your favorite film genre(s) and/or filmmakers
and (most importantly)…
--a review of a recent film.

Send all this to me, Elina Shatkin, at my email address, which is: myfirstandlastname at gmail dot com. Good luck!
