Dear Readers of Movie Mezzanine,
As you probably have noticed, Movie Mezzanine looks a bit different this morning. That’s because today marks the grand opening of Movie Mezzanine 2.0 – completely redesigned and ready to move forward as an online publication.
We’ve made some significant changes around here that all of you will notice as time passes. But if I can digress for a moment, I’d like to take this time to thank the readers of Movie Mezzanine. Although we’ve only been open since January 2nd of this year, we’ve quickly amassed a quality, actively growing readership. We’ve been quoted in USA Today and the New York Times. And we’ve been able to cover some of the most pertinent and fascinating film festivals around the world, from the Sundance Film Festival to Tribeca to Ebertfest.
I mention these accomplishments this morning because it’s important to know that none of it (and I do mean none of it) could’ve happened without the endless support so many of you give Movie Mezzanine on a daily basis.
As for the future of the site… more exciting renovations and changes to come for sure. Alas, no matter what radical changes take shape down the road, we’ll always be a publication dedicated to covering independent and mainstream cinema with insight and equality.
We hope all of you stick around for Act II of this program. And Readers, I forgot to say this when Movie Mezzanine went live back in January … but I’m beginning to think this, is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
