THE VILLAGE VOICE
The recipient of three Pulitzer prizes, the National Press Foundation Award, the George Polk Award, Front Page Awards, Deadline Club Awards and many others, the Voice has earned a reputation for its groundbreaking investigations of New York City politics, and as the premier expert on New York 's cultural scene. Writing and reporting on local and national politics, with opinionated arts, culture, music, dance, film and theater reviews, daily web dispatches and comprehensive entertainment listings, the Voice is the authoritative source on all that New York has to offer. Add classifieds unrivaled by any other New York publication, the Voice is New York 's most influential must-read alternative newspaper.
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, indieWIRE is the leading news, information, and social networking site for the international independent film community, including comprehensive coverage of indie, documentary and foreign language films, as well industry news, film festival reports, filmmaker interviews, and movie reviews. Its website (http://www.indiewire.com) includes special sections for high-profile film festivals, the new indieLOOP community site, filmmaker and industry weblogs, as well as resources and tools for emerging and established filmmakers.
