The website attracts some 10,000 dedicated movie lovers each week, and also syndicates movie reviews, interviews and other movie related material to major internet portals Telstra and Optus, as well as internet search giant Yahoo. “This is probably the first time a professional internet publication has spawned a television program,” said Andrew, “and we’re looking forward to making it exciting and entertaining.”
Andrew L. Urban conceived and launched Urban Cinefile in 1997. Andrew has been Channel Host for World Movies since 2002 and has completed 9 series of Front Up (prime time social documentary series on SBS).
