Immersing yourself in the sea of film magazines, you will be acutely aware that there are many dedicated to news about the hottest celluloid star, the biggest blockbuster movie, and the most fashionable actors and directors. But where do you find extensive news of the undercurrents in cinema? Who writes about the up and coming filmmakers who strive to make a living, or are just producing films for some serious fun? What publication provides you with an open debate on cinematic trends? Where can a director on a tight - or non-existing - budget find useful tips to help realise his/her project? Which magazine provides a comprehensive list of non-mainstream festivals and funding sources?

Filmwaves strives to answer these questions and more, in a publication we hope will inform, enlighten, amuse, and yet principally act as a tool for all limited-budget filmmakers and enthusiasts of alternative films.
