Film Journey was founded in 2003 by writer and editor Doug Cummings. It has been often cited by GreenCine Daily, IFC.com, Mubi and Fandor, and named by Film Comment in 2010 as a “Top Film Criticism Site.” Doug also co-founded the website Masters of Cinema (now a premium DVD label in the UK). His writing has appeared in DVD liner notes as well as academic and popular publications; he is a regular contributor to the LA Weekly. In 2009, he co-founded the grassroots movement Save Film at LACMA that successfully persuaded the museum to retain its weekend film exhibition. Additionally, he has worked as web editor for UCLA Film & Television Archive, film programmer for Echo Park Film Center, and programmer/editor for AFI FEST. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Katie and daughter Alexandra.
