An International Association of Internet Film Critics and Journalists
Film reviews, critiques, essays or analyses must be 300 words or longer and demonstrate an exceptional mastery of grammar and the English language. If your reviews contain frequent grammatical errors or typos, you will not be accepted.
A minimum of 50 film reviews should be available online and published by an accredited publication and must include your name or byline. If your reviews are NOT available online, you may submit them to an accredited online publication (there are hundreds out there, so do a search) to meet membership requirements. Your reviews must be indexed or searchable when an IFCS accountant verifies your content. (IFCS accountants are accredited and specialize in journalism and small business loan structuring.) Reviews posted as blogs, actual blogs, forums and large public article publishing outlets (including www.MySpace.com, www.helium.com and www.facebook.com) that do not specifically focus on or have a section dedicated to film reviews are not applicable.
Upon acceptance into the IFCS,
you will be categorized as either:
Critics Per Publication Limit: No publication can be represented in the IFCS by more than three active members, unless those members also represent one or more other publications that are not currently represented by three critics.
Acceptance into the IFCS shall be determined by a vote of all available active members, provided applicant clearly meets the membership requirements. Failure to provide all required information may result in disqualification.
IFCS is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. There are currently no dues collected for membership.
Applications will only be accepted January 1st - August 1st of each year so that a precise roster can be created. If you feel you meet the requirements for membership, and would like to be reviewed for acceptance, please send the following information to email@example.com:
Your full name, a contact email address and city/state/country where
you are based.
