If you share our passion for world cinema and alternative filmmaking, and want to help us in our efforts to give films otherwise ignored by the British media the critical coverage they deserve, then please support our website in whatever way you can.
DONATE TO WORLD CINEMA
We understand in our current economic climate, which doesn’t look like improving anytime soon, not everyone will be in a position to support us financially, and we would never, ever mandatorily charge our readers, as that would defeat the whole point of this website – which is to give better exposure to titles that are otherwise ignored by our Hollywood obsessed mainstream media. However, if you like what we are doing, and want to ensure we can stick around, please consider making a donation (as much and as often as you possibly can).
Of course, we do not enjoy the significant advertising revenue enjoyed by the mainstream film websites, and we are supporting an industry which does not have a significant promotional budget – there wouldn’t be any need for us if it did! – so we are reliant on people with the same passion as ourselves to keep us running. This website relies on the generous donations of likeminded film fans.
PURCHASE WORLD CINEMA AT AMAZON
If you order through Amazon (in the UK or USA), please go through our website first – of course, we want you to purchase world cinema titles and support the industry in the process, but this applies to anything you are looking to buy. We are integrating banners and links throughout our website which will allow you to click through to Amazon from any article you are reading. We will make a very small percentage from any purchase you make. We are talking pennies not pounds here, but if everyone who visits this site purchased from Amazon in this way, it would cover a significant portion of our running costs – and without costing you anymore in the process!
Click through to amazon.co.uk or amazon.com via the banners below. If you then bookmark the page you arrive at as your Amazon page, whenever you visit the online store through that bookmark and purchase an item in future, you will be supporting us in a very small but very important way.
SHARE US WITH YOUR FRIENDS
Remember, you can post links to the website on your social networking sites. All of our pages include buttons that allow you to share articles with your friends – it literally takes one click! So, if you use social networking sites like facebook and twitter, remember to share any articles and/or reviews you enjoy with your friends and followers. Film fans will never know about the great titles being released from around the world if we don’t share as much information as we can with as many people as we can. Hollywood films have millions of pounds to waste on PR and advertising, we have word of mouth.
Google’s +1 is going to become increasingly important to websites in the future. Unfortunately, major businesses who really don’t need any extra favours are going to benefit most from the way Google is using their +1 service to determine search results, so we need readers who use Google for their email to +1 the articles they read on this website – and as many and as often as possible.
If you have a website or a blog, you can add a link, or include our RSS feed in your blogroll – you can even post brief excerpts provided there’s a link to our site for the full article (please do not post more than two paragraphs). We also have banners available which you can add to your site (email over the dimensions and we’ll send immediately).
…AND MAKE SOME FRIENDS!
Don’t be shy! We have made it possible for our readers to comment on all of our articles quickly and easily, even allowing our readers to comment from their facebook profiles.
If you enjoy an article, or disagree with anything that’s been said, then let us know. We want this website to offer cinema fans a base where they can discuss the films they love with likeminded individuals, but it’s up to you to make it a vibrant and interactive community.
