Metro, Australia’s Oldest and Finest Film & TV Magazine, Now Online

Australia’s oldest film and TV magazine has marked an important moment in its history by launching as an online publication. The website will feature new work as well as extensive archival material from Metro’s six-decade history.

Metro website:
The publication remains available as a quarterly print magazine, but the launch of the Metro website ensures that it can find new audiences – both locally and abroad – for its considered, intellectually stimulating long-form critical coverage of film, TV and new media from Australia and the region.

Editor David Heslin said that this was a moment of significance for Australian screen culture.
‘It’s no exaggeration to say that Metro is one of a kind – while one can find serious discourse about international cinema here and abroad, opportunities for a deep level of engagement with Australian screen productions are few and far between. Metro has long been dedicated to fulfilling that need, and our new digital platform will help these films reach a whole new generation of readers.’
The archival section of the website, which includes contemporaneous analyses of classic movies, interviews with directors and producers from around the world, and coverage of developments in the Australian film industry as they happened, will be an essential resource for researchers, historians and those with a casual interest in the history of the nation’s cinema.
Everything on the website will be available for an affordably priced monthly or annual subscription, with a seven-day free trial available for new subscribers. There will also be subscriptions available for schools and institutions, and existing magazine subscribers will get access to the website free of charge.
