Okay, we said we were closing down back in December, but we really mean it this time. Nevertheless, MostlyFilm has TEN BLOODY DAYS of premium content for you before we pull down the shutters, with one or two new posts every day from now until Oscar night and beyond. To introduce our week-and-a-bit of wonders, here’s CaulorLime’s elegy to how we started and where we’re finishing.
Don’t worry, some of those emails can wait. Waste a little time with MostlyFilm today.
Have yourself a very mostly Christmas.
Touching football documentary Next Goal Wins is released on DVD today. To celebrate, we have three discs plus a signed poster to give away.
Hello there. Are you following MostlyFilm on Twitter and Facebook? Did you know that if you do, you can win competitions like this one, in which we gave away a pair of cinema tickets courtesy of the lovely people at Vue Cinemas? Well, you do now, so get to it.
It’s that time of year again: time to look back, reminisce, and think of the good old days, or What Really I Liked in 2012. For two weeks in December one writer will get Mostly Film to themselves each day to write about their favourite film , TV series, album, game, or Twitter feed (not really).

We’ve been putting out this blog most weekdays for over a year now, and it’s been great. But we won’t lie to you, it’s also been hard. And because we want to keep putting it out for a long time yet, we’ve come to the conclusion that it would be better for us to post (slightly) less frequently, and spend (slightly) fewer of our evenings wrestling with WordPress.
Don’t panic! We’re going to publish every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (public holidays excepted), and we’re hoping to have three proper posts a week – rather than four proper posts and some space-filling whimsy on Fridays.
We reserve the right to resort to space-filling whimsy.
Another thing: one of the best things about doing this for the last year and change has been how many writers we’ve had come in from outside the talkboard group that started the blog, some of whom have written some of our best stuff. We’d like that to continue. If you’ve written for us before, we’d love to have more from you (yes, even you), and if you haven’t, we’d love to hear from you even more. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And we’re always delighted to see new posters on the talkboard as well (you’ll need to register before you can post).
We’ll be back next week with a post from Philip Concannon on the short films commissioned for the Cultural Olympiad, and the promised reports from the Edinburgh International and London Indian Film Festivals.
