2022 has proven to be a historical year for The Film Magazine. Behind the scenes we have slightly evolved in terms of both our philosophy and the way we operate, which has ensured that our ever-talented writing team has been supported by more contributors than ever before and that our articles have become more eclectic and diverse. Over the course of 2022 you have read work from more than forty independent writers spanning no less than six countries and two continents, every single one of whom offered a unique perspective backed by a rich academic history within the arts.
Thanks to you, we have broken records for reading times and have set viewing figures that any independent publication can be proud of. Your support, both here on site and across social media, has proven invaluable in not only providing us with positive reinforcement and the courage to continue, but in promoting our tremendous work to others. Every click, every comment, every like, retweet and re-post, has boosted our morale and no doubt helped our most poignant work to positively impact the lives of other like-minded film fans.
Over the course of the year, regular readers and one-stop search engine visitors alike have been voting (with their clicks) for the articles that make this list of 22 Most Popular Articles 2022. These are the pieces that have forged connections with the most people, proven most controversial, or (most likely) broken the code of the mysterious search engines.
If you appreciate what we do and would like to help us get the word out on everything listed here and published across all our platforms, please consider following @thefilmagazine across social media, sharing any articles you enjoy, and donating to us via PayPal.
