There’s no easy way to deliver bad news, so it’s best to cut to the chase: Movie Mezzanine, unfortunately, is closing its doors. Sadly, while our effort to raise money via Patreon (in lieu of sponsorships, which we had in 2016) was shared by many folks online, the campaign itself was unsuccessful and is now closed; as such, the site will not be publishing new content, effective immediately.
While Movie Mezzanine will no longer be publishing new material for the foreseeable future, the site itself will not be removed from virtual existence; past essays, reviews, and more will still be live at the site to share/archive for our writers’ professional purposes, as well as readers’ interest.
Most of all, I’d like to say, on behalf of our founder Sam Fragoso, our executive editor Tina Hassannia, our deputy editor Kenji Fujishima, and myself as editor-in-chief, that it’s been a privilege and honor to work with each of our writers. I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of Movie Mezzanine for nearly 3 years; I am proud not only of the work that I produced for the site as a writer, but of all of the work they produced during that time, too.
I encourage you all to keep an eye out for those same writers, Sam, Tina, and Kenji (and myself, if you’re so inclined) at the other outlets where they hang their virtual hats. Don’t hesitate to support good writing in all shapes and sizes. For now, I’ll say goodbye and thanks for reading us all these years.
Josh Spiegel, Editor-in-Chief
