About Hammer to Nail

Thank you so much for visiting the Hammer to Nail Patreon page! Founded in 2008 by Corbin Day and Ted Hope, Hammer to Nail is a website whose mission is to connect readers to the most ambitious viewing on the planet. The site is now run by Editor-in-Chief Don Lewis, Editor-at-Large Matt Delman and Lead Film Critic Christopher Reed, as well as an eclectic mix of contributors from directors to festival programmers. Past contributors include the likes of David Lowery, Alex Ross Perry, Lena Dunham and Robert Greene.

Low budget. Arty. Personal. Exciting. New.

No Superhero Movies. No Clickbait. No Celebrity Gossip.

Hammer to Nail exists to give voice to filmmakers often ignored by more mainstream sites. While we sometimes run reviews and features on bigger budget films (typically of those young filmmakers HtN championed before ANYONE else!), our main bread and butter is truly independent cinema.

The Hammer to Nail Team does this as a labor of love. Won't YOU show some love and help us keep the website dedicated STRICTLY to TRULY independent film thriving?
$13.03 of $40 per month
$40 will cover our monthly server fee so we can keep the lights on and continue bringing you coverage of the best in indie film.
