About Us

FilmFisher is a movie review site by educators and students, for educators and students. Films are reviewed for artistic excellence, cinematography, writing, acting, plot, and the ways films succeed or fail at cultivating humanity and shaping those living as Christians. In short, films are evaluated for their truth, goodness, and beauty, or lack thereof. We aim at creating a community of experienced authors and young authors who work together to improve their craft; in our pages, you’ll find old vets and new voices alike.

In addition to presenting reviews, FilmFisher seeks to explore other aspects of film such as filmmaking, film history and cultural analysis prompted and suggested by film. FilmFisher seeks to provide practical guidance for watching and evaluating films for students and parents, but also seeks to prompt students to study and contemplate film as an art form that when used well can form and shape people and culture for the common good.
