Due to the economic impact of COVID-19, your support is more valuable than ever. Artists, arts organizations, and the media that supports them need your help. For as little as $1 a month you can help us continue bringing you coverage of new and classic films, TV, music, games, theater, books, and more.

Founded in 2001 by Ed Gonzalez and Sal Cinquemani, Slant Magazine has been bringing you candid takes on film, music, TV, games, home video, and more for nearly two decades. Over the years, we've covered festivals across the globe, including Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Sundance, True/False, Berlinale, Locarno, and countless others. The giants of the film, music, theater, and literary worlds have given us their time to talk about their work: Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Laurie Anderson, Larry Kramer, Walter Hill, Kathryn Bigelow, James Gray, Isabelle Huppert, Paul Verhoeven, Olivier Assayas, Michel Gondry, D.A. Pennebaker, Marion Cotillard, Sam Gold, Liv Ullmann, and more.

In 2010, Slant joined forces with The House Next Door, founded by New York magazine TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz, bringing the the arts and culture blog's content in-house. Film Comment singled out the House Next Door as one of the top film criticism sites, writing: "One would be hard-pressed to find an online film magazine as inclusive or expansive as this one." Indeed, inclusivity has always been our mission.

Slant is reaching more readers than ever before, but advertising revenue across the Internet is falling fast, hitting independently owned and operated publications like ours the hardest. We've watched many of our fellow media sites, from The Dissolve to Movie Mezzanine, fall by the way side in recent years, but we're determined to stick around.

Which is why Slant needs your help.

We're committed to keeping our content free and accessible—which means no paywalls or subscription fees. If you like what we do, however, please consider making a contribution. One-hundred percent of the funds we collect will go toward maintaining and improving the magazine, as well as paying our contributors so that we can keep bringing you reviews of the latest releases, TV recaps, exclusive interviews, festival dispatches, lists, news, and more.

Thank you for your support!

When we reach $1,000 per month, we'll be able to pay our contributors more for their work. We'll also be able to add more TV recaps to our coverage.
