Indy Film Library
How many contributors do you have?
More than five
What is the main focus of your site?
Supplying invaluable feedback to independent filmmakers. We write professional reviews for artists who usually only know if their film is good if festivals accept them, or if their friends and colleagues say so. The problem for them is festivals don’t supply feedback on what is wrong with their film if they reject them, and friends and family are unlikely to want to poke holes in the work of their loved ones – so they need impartial feedback to improve. That’s where Indy Film Library comes in.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Personally I want to help filmmakers hone their craft, and put audiences in touch with amazing art they would usually not have heard about. Professionally in the long term, I want to grow Indy Film Library from a side-hustle into an actual full-time occupation.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
We would prefer interaction – and one of the motives for reaching out to networks is the hope that we will get more of it.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.)

How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one?
Another blogger recommended it to me.
Is there an article on your site you are particularly proud of that you would like the LAMB to promote?
A recent review we published which wasn’t glowing, but the filmmaker received extremely well and said the points made were extremely useful going forward: The Thing Is (2016)
