Issue 1, December 2018
We’re thrilled to be introducing a new UK film magazine into the world: Film Stories! And it’s on sale right now!
Welcome to Britain’s new monthly mainstream film magazine, that zeroes in on the smaller rooms in the multiplex, and the bigger rooms in the indies. There are lots of films that never seem to get close to front covers, big features and such like, and we aim to change that!
It’s from the creator of Den Of Geek, and each issue will feature…
At least 100 pages, crammed with news, reviews, features, interviews and mayhem
Writers you’ve not met before, with opportunity for new talent at the heart of the magazine
A mix of films you’ve heard of, and films you haven’t! All of which we want to hoist on our shoulders
Regular columns on filmmaking, screenwriting and mental health
And sooooo much more.
The unlikely story of how Tooth Fairy led to The Rock backing a film about a family from Norwich.
How getting a serious diagnosis affects feelings towards movies
Celebrating the women who changed cinema, whose names aren’t always easy to find in the history books
The bizarre unofficial line in Nicolas Cage merchandise. Er, a bit odd, this one.
The 12A certificate, and the latest BBFC changes

The directors who left Hollywood behind (and not always by choice)
