It started with a typo: in a note to Dana Linssen, my editor at Filmkrant—the Dutch tabloid for which I write a monthly column titled ‘World Wide Angle’—I mistakenly wrote Filmrant. She took that error and ran with it, conceiving at the end of 2012 a collaboration between herself and the graphic artist Typex for the Rotterdam International Film Festival called Filmrant, ‘just one leaflet a day in a very small circulation, mostly hand designed, drawn and written and photocopied’. Filmrant thus became part of the annual activity at Filmkrant for Rotterdam known as the ‘Slow Criticism’ project—an opportunity for film critics, journalists and scholars, to reflect on their practice, or on a theme, or to dwell in detail on a particular film screening in the Rotterdam program.
