Welcome to TAIL SLATE: THE LAST WORD IN MOVIES since the year 2000! It developed from a simple film-appreciation site, with a goal to provide amateur filmmakers and dreamers with an understanding of how films are made, the work that goes into them and the sweat it causes. It is also a place for filmmakers and lovers of film to come together, share their appreciation for the craft, and help other writers, directors, editors, actors, etc. gain the know-how they need to achieve their dreams. If you are interested in submitting a film review, a film-related book review, or an article/essay for and/or about filmmakers, then please review our Contributor’s Submission Guidelines.
