Filmagra exists to fill the void of mainstream criticism which is infatuated with celebrity culture, apolitical, and chooses to read a film solely based on its technical merit and enjoyability. All films are political. Thus, entries here are unapologetically concerned with a film’s political function and use cinema as a medium to discuss larger political and social issues.

Through this website, Filmagra’s letterboxd, and soon to come social media profiles, a new, internationalist and revolutionary film canon will slowly come to fruition.

Filmagra centers third world, non-Hollywood, POC produced, indigenous, and queer cinema and discusses them beyond the dangerous gaze of identity politics which cherishes any minority led project simply because of its minority status. Above all, Filmagra is guided by an undying passion for cinema and expresses this love by writing with a cultured outlook which is deeply concerned with class, race, and feminist politics.
