Film Appreciation

Film Appreciation articles are where we devote some time and space to discussing some of our favorite movies to watch, laying out details on what we enjoy about them and maybe even sharing some memories we have involving the film.

We welcome guest contributors for this feature, anyone can contribute a Film Appreciation article at any time. The only hard rule: keep it positive. Don't use your love for one film to tear another film down, just talk about the movie you enjoy. Length of the articles vary, we try to aim for at least a page and a half.

Everyone has different perspectives, memories, and ways of writing, so we will even accept Film Appreciation submissions for movies that already have Appreciation articles devoted to them.

If you're a movie fan who would like to write a Film Appreciation article to be featured on the blog, just e-mail us at lifebetweenframes@gmail.com and let us know.

Below we have a list of the Film Appreciation articles that can currently be found on the blog:
