Cinefile derives from Cinephilia, a term used to refer to a passionate interest in films, film theory, and film criticism. The term is a blending of the words cinema and philia, one of the four ancient Greek words for love. Yes, we love our films with a passion and love to share this passion with you.

Our writers are people just like you, with jobs, careers, and lives. Our founder, Kai Bayley is an enrollment specialist, but that hasn’t kept her from writing about films. No matter how varied our lives, we have one thing in common; a passion for all things cinema and art.

Cinefile is About the Passion we Share
Some of our avid readers have even submitted articles that they have written themselves. With so many opinions and tastes in the world of film, they are welcome additions. While our editors have the final say and space limitations determine how many we can include, we encourage our loyal subscribers to submit reviews and join in the fun.
This proactive approach to developing our magazine has created an atmosphere of camaraderie with our readers and some have even commented on how much they enjoy feeling involved as partners and friends.
We’d love to have you join us here at Cinefile and share in our passion for the fine arts of the cinema.
