I’m Simone – a lover of films from all over the world. My passion for films outside of Hollywood blockbusters, probably began on my weekend trips to a now closed, movie rental store. Given the same amount of money each, my brother and I would rent whatever we wanted for the weekend. The world cinema section offered more for my money, so I ventured away from the familiar to try something new. Before I knew it, I had made my way through their entire J-Horror section.

These precious weekends, I discovered that some of the best movies were made outside of Tinseltown.

It is therefore the reason that World in Cinema will mainly focus on gems that can be found outside of Hollywood.
