JumpCut Online is an award-winning entertainment publication. Since our inception in January 2015, we have always strived to be a platform for enthusiastic writers of any experience to be able to share their thoughts and opinions on all things film, TV, and most recently – video games.
Over the last few years we have been regulars at film festivals including, Sundance, Edinburgh, London, Tribeca, Glasgow, FrightFest, Film Fest 919, Cambridge, Nashville, and London Short Films and we hope to continue and expand our festival coverage.
We were also incredibly lucky to interview some ridiculously talented people last year, including Oscar nominees Terence Blanchard (composer, BlackKklansman), Lukasz Zal (cinematographer, Cold War), Robbie Ryan (cinematographer, The Favourite), and Fiona Crombie (production designer, The Favourite). We’ve also had the pleasure of interviewing Christopher McQuarrie (director, Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Melina Jeurgens (motion capture actress, Hellblade), Millie Shapiro (actress, Hereditary), and Issa Lopez (director/writer, Tigers Are Not Afraid) to name just a few!
JumpCut Online strives to provide a vast and varying database of film, television, and video game reviews. JumpCut prioritises diversity, working with a team of writers from far and wide, showcasing a varied palette of cinema. In 2019 we were awarded Best Group at the UK Blog Awards.
It is apparent that disabled experiences and stories are underrepresented in the film and television industry and within film criticism. Despite calls for diversity and inclusivity within this industry, disabled and Deaf people are often sidelined. By improving the accessibility of our platform, we hope to create an inclusive space where all marginalised communities can share their stories and opinions. As of June 2020 we have taken steps to make our website and social platforms more accessible for disabled writers and audiences, specifically blind and/or Deaf individuals.
Not only are we driven to create interesting and exciting content for our audience, but last year we also launched the JumpCut Charity Initiative as a means to give a little something back to selected charities. In 2019 we collectively raised £3,272.95 for charities of our team’s choosing, and in June 2020 we raised £3,305 which was split between Black Lives Matter and The Trussell Trust.
