What’s a Projektor?
A new publication for international film.

At agoodmovietowatch, our goal is to bridge the gap between great movies and the audiences who seek them. To do this, we tried to make our website as practical as humanly possible. We want it to be a place where you can quickly get a recommendation and get watching.

We substituted long-form reviews for short “our take” blurbs, and we tried to break down review elements into navigation paths: which mood is each film best suited for? Who is it better watched with

Our small project has blossomed into a platform trusted by millions of readers every year, and behind the curtains, a small but passionate community of writers. 

But something was missing. We felt that we were still not practical enough, since audiences had to visit our website before watching our recommendations. For this, we launched Netflix Curator, a Chrome Extension that will show our recommendations directly on Netflix. If successful, we plan to extend it to other streaming services. 

We also felt that we were missing the benefits of long-form writing: conveying who we are and where our passion for film takes us. We wanted to write more than “our takes”, and about all the weird movies we want to write about, not just ones that fit the site’s criteria. 

For this today we are launching Projektor, an international film publication. 

If traditional recommendations on agoodmovietowatch were the small paragraph next to an art piece at the gallery exhibit; Projektor articles are the feature in the newspaper that critiques that piece. 

(A lot) more of the same

Our focus is to provide you with independent, genuine, and helpful movie recommendations. With Projektor, we hope to do the same, but in much longer format. 

A typical “our take” for a film we recommend runs around 100 words. Projektor submissions will have 10x the word count, with a maximum of 1500 words. 

The idea is not to overwhelm you with text, but to explain in more detail why a specific film has caught our writer’s attention. If traditional recommendations on agoodmovietowatch were the small paragraph next to an art piece at the gallery exhibit; Projektor articles are the feature in the newspaper that critiques that piece. 

Projektor houses writing on the best of international cinema

We didn’t want to start a film publication that will crowd your feed with movies you can read about on The Guardian*. This is why we decided we will focus on movies that don’t get as much attention: non-English-language releases.

There is so much great international cinema that goes unnoticed every year. We would like to write about these movies in hopes of bringing more coverage and thoughtful analysis to them. 

We also plan to run festival coverage, data analysis reports about the film industry, and interviews with promising filmmakers. 

*Sorry about the diss, The Guardian.

How to write for Projektor
