Welcome to the Festivale Contributor's Area|
The site is currently under site-wide revision.
Somewhere along the line I have lost (overwritten?) a heap of film reviews from Festivale Online Magazine. I'm making a list, and checking it twice, but if you have a film you love, or hate, encourage people to watch or avoid, or you just want to point out something that no-one else seems to have gotten (is that a word?), please, we would love to post PG-13-ish reviews.

testing all existing links, fact-checking the current pages and improving the existing

Nit-pickers who are willing to check uploaded pages for errors.
Geeks who are interested in helping to code the site.
A graphic artist to develop the look of Festivale, maintaining the primary goals of easy of use and fast response times.
Contributing editors interested in specific sections.
Festivale is a non-paying publication, providing experience and exposure to interested people. For artists and photographers who contribute to the site, we are encouraging them by promoting the sale of prints through artist rising, a division of art.com.
Photographs from the Festivale site have been used for illustrations in books and magazines, one book cover, and have resulted in commissions for further work.
For more about image requirements for Festivale, see the Festivale Style Book.
Books awaiting review are handled by e-mail notification. Contact ali @ festivale if you are interested.
Reviews by contributors from their own collections would be much appreciated.
Commentary and interviews are always welcome. Answers to The Usual Questions are always welcome from published authors and illustrators. Essays for the series series are always welcome.
