Director is proud to announce that we have moved our quarterly digital edition and archive dating back to 2005 to Exact Editions, a London-based company specializing in digitizing content, selling subscriptions and providing streaming solutions across platforms Web, iOS and Android. Our digital edition, which replicates our print edition, is now available to read through Exact editions on browsers and mobile devices, the latter through a browser or the company’s Exactly app, available in the App and Google Play stores. . As a long-time reader of other publications using Exact Editions, I’ve admired the company’s sleek and easy-to-use platform. Issues download quickly, can be saved for offline reading on tablets, pages can be downloaded as PDFs, and our entire archive is now searchable by keyword.

In addition, Exact editions is a leader in institutional sales, so we look forward to Director being conducted in more universities and colleges. The institutional subscription features provided by the Exact Editions platform provide institutions with usage reports, MARC records, and KBART data. The advanced search function allows professors, scholars and students to search for specific keywords and articles across the entire archive.

Filmmaker is available from the Exact Editions institutional store here.

Exact Editions Managing Director Daryl Rayner said in a press release, “The content found within the pages of this archive is sure to become an invaluable resource for film students and independent filmmakers. Director joins a solid list of film magazines on the Exact Editions platform.

All DirectorContent from the print magazine also remains available online, with some paid articles for subscribers only.

To give an example of the browser-based reading experience of Exact Editions (again, Director can also be read via the Exactly tablet app), we’ve unlocked a number of articles, most of which have never been published online before.
