URBAN CINEFILE: WWWIDELY READ

As at June 1, 1999, approximately 100,000 readers spend an estimated total of 4,425 hours on-line a month, reading over 300,000 pages of our reviews, news, features, interviews, chats and archives either on the Urban Cinefile site itself, or through our content partners
AOL,
Telstra Big Pond
(http://www.entertainment.bigpond.com/movies.htm)
and
Yahoo! Australia & New Zealand,
(http://au.movies.yahoo.com/movies/)
who all carry our syndicated content.

Confidentiality agreements prevent us publishing a breakdown of the figures, but we are pleased to record the overall monthly readership landmark of 100,000 and continuing a strong upward trend less than two and a half years after launching Urban Cinefile (February 1997).

WWWORLD WWWIDE REACH
Most of our readers are in Australia, of course, but we have readers literally all over the world, from China and Canada to Brazil and Belgium, from Finland and France (in relatively large numbers) to Ireland and Israel, South Korea and South Africa, New York and New Mexico, Russia and Singapore, Iceland and India - and everywhere in between.

MOVIE CLUB

In addition, Toyota sponsored the daily Postcards from Cannes, (http://entertainment.bigpond.com/cannes_main.htm)
which was a major feature of the Cannes Film Festival coverage on the Telstra Big Pond Movies section, devised and provided by Urban Cinefile. Exceptionally high click-through rates of around 3.9 made Toyota very happy.
