The founder of entertainment website Den of Geek is launching a monthly magazine focused on the British film industry, after raising more than £113,500 through crowdfunding and private investing.

Film Stories is expected to launch at the end of November with a £5.99 cover price, and will be dedicated to smaller films, as well as Hollywood blockbusters.

Den of Geek and Film Stories’ founder, Simon Brew, said: “I’m a huge fan of long-form film writing and the craft of magazines. There is something special about reading a long article in a magazine,” he said. “The people reading the magazine will know instantly if they get that same feeling.

“There’s stuff in magazines you’d never get on websites. You can take more chances with magazines, go completely left-field and not be driven by the demands of SEO,” he added.

Film Stories will be built on exclusive print content, with nothing outside of select reviews published online. Brew also plans to release a series of niche magazines if Film Stories is successful.
