FAQs

Film Submission for Review Frequently Asked Questions

  1. WHY CHARGE TO SUBMIT A FILM FOR REVIEW?
    It costs money to review the films. Whether that be via mailing the various DVDs or site usage.
  2. WHY DOES IT COST $10 TO REVIEW AN ONLINE  BUT $15 TO REVIEW A MAILED-IN DVD?
    Mailed-in DVDs mean we have to pack and ship them to the different writers, and that has a very real shipping cost. The extra $5 covers that cost.
  3. DOES PAYING FOR A SUBMISSION MEANS I GET A GOOD REVIEW?
    No. You’re paying to use the service, which is getting your film in front of professional writers so they can review your unsolicited project. You’re not paying for the editorial content.
  4. PAYING TO SUBMIT FOR REVIEW DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET A POSITIVE REVIEW.
  5. DO YOU REVIEW ALL SUBMITTED FILMS?
    We reserve the right not to review a film submitted to us, for various reasons at our discretion. If we decide not to review a film submitted we will refund the submission fee.
  6. WHAT IF YOU GIVE MY FILM A NEGATIVE REVIEW, CAN I REQUEST THAT YOU REMOVE THE REVIEW FROM THE SITE?
    No. We stand behind the honest judgements we make on all reviews.
  7. MAY I USE ONE FORM TO SUBMIT MULTIPLE FILMS?
    Only submit one form, per film. This makes it easier to track submissions and, in the cases where different writers may review films from the same director, mailed in at the same time, it allows us to be even more accurate in our review turnaround timetable.
  8. MAY I  SEND A FILM ANYWAY?
    If your film is unsolicited, then it won’t be reviewed.
  9. HOW DO I TRACK MY SUBMISSION?
    If mailing a DVD, you’ll get an email when your film has arrived. Both online and mailed submissions will get an email when the reviews have been scheduled for publishing. Due to the large response to this service, expect a review in 4-6 weeks.
  10. We do not return the films or submission materials so DO NOT send originals.
  11. Drop us a line if you have more questions.

*Non-Published (or Private) Critiques: Due to popular request, we are now willing to perform critiques privately that will not be published, if for some reason you would prefer to not have your critique made public.  However because we would be unable to subsidize these critiques as additional content for the magazine, we would need to charge $350 for shorts and $550 for features.  If you are interested in this, please email the editor directly at: reviews@lablackfilm.com.

Our goal is to help people improve their work so it is the best it can be!
