 | EDITORIAL |

  BY PH Editorial

Projectorhead is an online film journal published by Lightcube Film Society, a NGO registered in New Delhi, India under the Registrar of Societies, Government of India. Lightcube has been involved in the promotion of alternative and independent cinema through the organisation of detailed retrospectives, festivals, screenings and programmes across the country. Information about Lightcube and its upcoming programmes is available at www.lightcube.in/about

At Projectorhead, we aim to publish content that is constituted by observations, personal truths, nostalgia, associations and brave commentary. In short, an ode to cinephilia as a private activity that links an individual to the world. Our desire is to blend spontaneous passion and entertaining writing with academic rigor of accurate information and correct sourcing. We want our readers to derive knowledge from our publications and, to the best of our abilities, refuse to print incorrect or half-complete information on any given subject. 

It has also been Projectorhead's mission to first identify and then publish writing by unique, original and potent young voices in Indian criticism. To this end, the pages of the magazine are filled with different voices from across the country, each representing a deeply valued personal perspective, brought forth into the world with much fervour and a desire to be heard, which we believe is an integral quality of all great writing. Simultaneously, it has also been the publication's desire to invite critics from around the world to contribute to the magazine, thereby forging an exchange with a newer readership, while also lending prestige to Projectorhead through association.

The activities of Lightcube, which include film screenings, festivals in small towns/villages, the publication of Umbra and the maintenance of Projectorhead are carried out by a young and tireless team of critics, editors, writers, curators and cine-enthusiasts. The costs incurred in these are a consequence of our desire to keep our operations independent, rid of interference from an external agency and self-sufficient. We believe very strongly in the idea that for any cultural or artistic institution to fulfil a useful purpose, it needs to forge a community around itself, which helps sustain an effective exchange of ideas among its members. Thus, in order to help Projectorhead preserve its long-held standards of quality in criticism, coverage and report of a wide variety of films from around the world, we are reaching out to the readers of this magazine - old and new - to support the magazine's endeavour by pledging a certain amount to assist in the running of its operations.

The amount gathered on a running basis by the magazine will be invested in the logistical, day-to-day operations, the maintenance and evolution of the website and a long-standing aim of the publishers: to help establish criticism of film as a proper profession with returns that correspond to the effort invested in great writing.
