We have thought long and hard about the ethics of this.  Close-Up Film receives a high volume of unsolicited titles for review and cannot accommodate all requests.  However, we realise there is a demand and we are pleased to offer a limited, paid service, at the cost of £20 per short film (30 mins or less) review, £30 for a feature. This does not apply to theatrical & official DVD releases and certain other titles. It is aimed at filmmakers who are seeking to promote their film and raise their profile, possibly prior to festival entry. By submitting your film for paid review you accept that:

(a) Close-Up Film has a duty to be honest with its audience, so we will not say a film is fantastic if it isn't.  However, we will give you an in-depth, considered review, highlighting the good points and providing constructive criticism where necessary - our aim is to support you.  We will then publish on Close-Up Film, link to imdb, and tweet to our twitter followers.  We will also be happy to supply ongoing updates to our audience, at no extra cost, if you supply copy.

(b) Close-Up Film is under no obligation to accept your submission.  Films should be of exhibition standard i.e. that it well shot, demonstrates an understanding of film conventions, and will be of interest to an intended audience.  If we do not feel a film meets this criteria it will not be accepted.  We will, however, give reasons why, without any charge.

(C) The review will carry a line at the bottom stating: "This is a paid but honest review from Close-Up Film. We only accept paid submissions from filmmakers we believe have the talent or potential to be of interest to audiences."
