Write For Us and Get Paid


We are looking for new writers this summer! If you’re good at making film lists and want a platform to share it with more than 600,000 movie fans, we want you to join Taste of Cinema as a contributor!

We’re gathering a team of passionate and skillful writers to join us in bringing high-quality content to the millions of monthly readers that visit Taste of Cinema.

In exchange for posting, contributors will have the opportunity to promote and link their organization, website, social media, books, or products in a prominent author byline that will be seen by thousands on each post they write.

If you don’t have anything to promote, we will PAY YOU for the list. The more clicks it gets, the more we will pay you. You can ask us about the details in the application.

You can write one or several lists for us, or you can choose to be a regular contributor. The number of lists you contribute to our site is totally flexible.

To apply for this, you can send an email to David (email address: Please let us know the following in your email:

1. Your age and occupation?

2. Can you tell us your favorite films/directors/actors/genres?

3. What’s your writing experience?

4. How long have you been following Taste of Cinema? (assuming you do…but it’s fine if you don’t — we might still like you).

5. If you were a TOC contributor, how often would you post?

6. If you were a TOC contributor, what ideas do you have for your first list? (this is important, so think carefully)

We are also looking for list video makers who can make and narrate (you don’t have to write the list) a list video. If you are interested in this position, please answer questions 1-5 above (it would be “video making experience” in question 3) and send the links to your video samples to David (email address: Of course this is also a paid job, we will discuss more details in the emails.

Last thing, don’t forget to check out your inbox after sending us the email, we will reply to your application within a week (if we think you are the right person to write for us).

  • Hello Taste of cinema!

    Hats off for your service!

    your top 25 film composer list honored by ilayaraja.

    And we are regretted for gave him 9th place. For his soul mixed music composition 9th place is so bad.

    Pls watch this sample music of Maestro.

    hope you revise the list of 25.

    we are expecting!

    Thank you!


  • Anand

    A R Rahman name is missing in the list. On what basis, 25 film composer was chosen? Based on the number of movies???? Of course i m happy for the great Illaiyaraja.

  • Kumar Muralidharan

    Where is R.D.Burman, MSV, A.R.Rahman… Shame on Taste of Cinema>>>

  • Sebastián Andrés Soto Salas

  • Wendy

    why do i not find the 25 greatest composers of World of cinema.It was there earlier

  • morricone

    why have you removed 25 greatest film music composers list. any pressure or something from some influential composer who was not worth it but insisted that his name should be in the list. that list was 100% accurate. be bold and please put it back.

  • Pingback: Shameless Self-Promotion | Make Mine Criterion!()

  • morricone

    Why are you people scared to put back the list of the 25 best film music composers. come on guys. lift your chest up and put it back. Ennio was and is the best and the remaining 24 deserve to be in the list. Dont get cowed down.

  • I’m not good at making lists but I can translate in Italian. Or write reviews since I have my own blog

    If following directions is part of the “vetting” process, I imagine some commentators here hope Hiring Director/manager won’t see this.

  • I have a question.. Do minors like me are allowed to apply for this? I’m just only 17 years old but I’m a 1st year Film student from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (Philippines). Thank you for your response.

    Graduate in Cinema and Photography and have seen more films than most, however, this stupid idea of “The 20 Best” or whatever is just ludicrous, list are good but calling them best is WRONG.

  • lukas bielan

    with all due respect, your article of the best dip’s…Robert Elswit did not shoot The Master…Mihai Malaimare Jr. did…

  • Kevin

    Considering that I am physically disabled and pretty much do nothing but watch movies and read books, I am thinking about applying for this. I have read TOC on and off but not thoroughly.Before I submit an application, I think it would be prudent to review previous articles to insure that my first list ideas don’t overlap or contribute a topic that has already been covered.

    I have noticed that it has been two years since anyone has posted here (with a few exceptions from responses), so I am not sure if this request for writing is still active or not. It would be get a response about the status of TOC still looking for writers. I am a writer for and plus a few other websites.

  • carolina fuentes ibarburu

    Les escribí y nunca me contestaron!!!

  • cumluvr

    This Zou character is sketchy AF.

    I emailed him with my CV and ideas for lists, he replied asking me for the titles in my top list, I replied with 30 titles and never heard from him again.

    He’s clearly fishing for ideas. Furthermore he’s published lists made up entirely of descriptions plagiarized word for word from Criterion Collection descriptions.

    It’s the risk you run when applying for this kind of thing but this guy has a well-established history of sketchy behavior. Don’t send him specifics.

  • I emailed a week ago but no reply…. does this mean I’m rejected?

  • blogloudly

    Pay close attention to your email inbox.

    I despise how they lure you in with ‘paid articles’ yet you never hear from them again when you mention it after publishing two elaborate articles on their website. I would keep this in mind when signing up.
