- film reviews, such as on Chantal Akerman's News from Home or Michel Lipkes' Malaventura
- interviews with filmmakers (read extracts of my interview with Lav Diaz, for example)
- thoughts on certain themes, such as the idea of waiting
- thoughts on books and journal articles I have been reading, for instance Art and Therapy by Alain de Botton and John Armstrong.
The Art(s) of Slow Cinema is now the largest English-language database of slow films and it is steadily growing. Every month, the website attracts around 4,000 visitors and in the last 12 months alone, the site drew over 50,000 people. The site is a source for both cinephiles and scholars who seek new visual and literary material in order to expand their own horizon.
I'm turning to Patreon in order to keep up the work and enhance the website's contents. Your money, your support, goes entirely to the purchase of new films (on DVD, BluRay, as possible imports in order to get access to them) and new books that will be reviewed and written about on my blog.
But I'm also using Patreon in order to establish contacts to my readers and supporters. It is this, I believe, that is most valuable and profitable for any creative work.
Thank you very much for your support, and I'd love to take you on a slow journey through film and art with me.
