Filmmaker Magazine launches digital archive
Scott Macaulay: “As a reader of other publications on the platform, I’ve admired the stylish, easy-to-use digital experience offered by Exact Editions.”

According to Filmmaker, individuals and institutions can now subscribe for fully-searchable access to over 60 issues, dating back to 2005, with new issues published four times a year.

Brooklyn-based Filmmaker is a publication by, for and about independent filmmakers. The modern archive includes in-depth interviews with filmmakers of the era from Quentin Tarantino to Kelly Reichardt to Barry Jenkins, along with articles chronicling the growth and transformation of independent film in real time, says the publisher.

Institutional subscription features provided by the Exact Editions platform provide institutions with usage reports, MARC Records and KBART data. The advanced search function allows professors, academics, and students alike to search for specific keywords and articles across the whole archive.

The Exact Editions Universals Service allows Filmmaker to sell their own digital subscriptions and provide their print subscribers with access to the modern digital archive. Subscribers can register for digital access using their subscription reference, enabled through Exact Editions’ authentication technology.

Editor-in-chief of Filmmaker, Scott Macaulay, commented: “As a reader of other publications on the platform, I’ve admired the stylish, easy-to-use digital experience offered by Exact Editions. Now, at Filmmaker we’re proud to be able to offer 17 years of our content to individuals and institutions. Exact Editions’ Universals Service allows us to control our digital sales and customer data while offering international readers an affordable way to access our print content and new and existing print subscribers an elegant digital supplement.”

Managing director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, said: “The content found within the pages of this archive will surely become an invaluable resource for film students and independent filmmakers. Filmmaker is adding to a strong roster of film magazines on the Exact Editions platform.”
