Screen Comment was founded in 2006 in New York City by Ali Naderzad, Abbas Kiarostami came to Film at Lincoln Center for a screening and a Q&A and Ali Naderzad wrote a blog post about it; Screen Comment was born.

We love movies and we love to write about them and the people who make them possible. By 2023 we had published nearly 2,700 movie reviews and interviews with screenwriters and actors, filmmakers, DPs, producers and festival organizers. We’ve covered Sundance, Tribeca, the New York Film Festival, Cannes, Berlin and Venice.

The offer: stories about movies (recent ones or upcoming releases) across all genres, world cinema or American cinema, independent and commercial and the people who make them possible.
