Rua Fay

Creator, Writer, Editor In Chief

Hello! My name is Rua Fay, I am from Boston, Massachusetts and I am a huge cinephile. This is my website where I talk about everything concerning my favorite art form: film! Growing up I was not surrounded by a lot of people with similar interests so I figured I would make this website to write about what I love and hopefully connect to others who share the same love for cinema as me! Here I post reviews, analysis essays on my favorite movies and probably a lot more things as this site continues to grow. I completed Boston University's Summer Theater Institute in 2021 and I currently study film at Ithaca College, where I serve as a Life and Culture writer for The Ithacan newspaper and as President of the Ithaca College Film Society. I was also recently accepted to intern at the American Pavillion at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival. I'm on track to graduate in 2026. My favorite directors of all time are Stanley Kubrick, Charlie Chaplin, and John Waters. If you've stumbled upon this site, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my website and I hope you find something you like!

Emily Taber


Hi! I’m Emily Taber: a Houston local and a lover of all things film and TV. I’m a screenwriting student at Ithaca College (and Tisch Future Artists Alum) set to graduate in 2026. I love writing in all forms and love talking about movies with anyone who will listen- even if they disagree! I recently completed an internship at the Cannes Film Festival where I worked in PR and festival coverage, and would love to continue exploring the world of film and entertainment journalism. Controversially, I am a lover of a good bad movie.

Cade Earick


Hello! My name is Cade Earick and i'm an avid film and music lover from Rumney, NH. When not listening to or writing music, I often spend time analyzing and enjoying cinema, as well as producing films and documentaries. I also enjoy acting, playing roles such as Lefou in Beauty and The Beast and Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey. I thoroughly enjoys arthouse films, oscar-bait, b-rated action flicks, and Wes Anderson. I'm so excited to write for all y'all, and share my love of film and film music with all of you!

Zach Zanatta


Hi! My name is Zach Zanatta and I’m a University student from Toronto. I’ve been watching movies basically my whole life and it doesn’t look like I’ll be stopping anytime soon. I started my cinematic journey with animation and horror, and those two genres haven’t stopped being my favourites since. I’m a big fan of Italian Neorealism, classic slashers, and silent comedies, but I’m always willing to branch out and try something new. Some of my favourite directors are Charlie Chaplin, Federico Fellini, Dario Argento, Ingmar Bergman and Paul Thomas Anderson. Besides movies, I’m into art and music, basically anything that isn’t sports. I have a ton of things I want to say about movies, some good, some bad, most likely all unprofessional, so check my stuff out here if you’d like.
