Bright Wall/Dark Room is currently accepting submissions for our monthly online magazine. Each issue is built around a particular theme, and we open up the submission process for each new issue 1-2 months in advance of the submission deadline. We are also now accepting general pitches and submissions (off-theme) for consideration.
Some examples might include: Pan's Labyrinth (or most anything by Guillermo del Toro, really), The Science of Sleep, Stranger Than Fiction, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Cinema Paradiso, Wings of Desire, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Princess Bride, L.A. Story, Donnie Darko, In the Company of Wolves, Pleasantville, Chocolat, Field of Dreams, Edward Scissorhands.
In order to be considered for the issue, we’ll need to receive a first draft of your essay by March 4, 2018.
We welcome unsolicited essay submissions of any length, on any film or television related topic. If you'd like to submit a pitch or an essay to our editorial team, this is the place to do it. However, before you submit your piece, we recommend that you read our current issue online, or browse through our archives a bit, to get a sense of the kinds of things we tend to publish.
Please note: due to the number of submissions we receive, we aren't always able to respond to every single pitch or submission. However, if we are interested in your pitch or submission, you will be contacted within one month.
