Live for Films is 10 years old!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Who would have thought it? Today is the 10th Anniversary of Live for Films.

This little old website that began because my friends were fed up with me sending them emails about movie news so suggested I “put it on a blog or something!” It began with my review of Rear Window. It has been a labour of love and people seem to dig what we do here.

A huge thanks to all the writers around the world, past and present, who have let me share their wonderful words. Incredible writing from everyone.

Ten years of incredible films.

It has gone from being a bit of a newsletter for my buddies to being one of the Top 10 UK Film Blogs. We have been quoted on film posters and Blu-ray covers. We’ve been shortlisted for awards (one day we will win one of them) and it turns out I am one of the biggest social media influencers in the movie business…which is nice!

It blows my mind and I am truly honoured by all of them.

Bigger than all of that is the fact we also have official Live for Films T-Shirts!

It has taken me to various places where I have met many amazing people. That includes going to Tatooine with my brilliant daughter for the Secret Cinema presents The Empire Strikes Back. We have interviewed incredible filmmakers and actors. It has got me into podcasting with After the Ending. That was the idea of my good friend and co-host, Mike Spring, and it has been picked by the BBC as one of the culture podcasts that will blow your mind. Mike and I finally met in the real world at NYCC 2017 after knowing each other for many years online.

During the past 10 years my life has had big ups and huge downs, but running the site and speaking to all the wonderful fans has been one of the things that has helped see me through the rough times.

A great big thank you to all of you reading this. You are all brilliant.

Here is to the next 10 years.

I promised myself I wouldn’t cry!
