The Magazine

Little White Lies launched in 2005 with the sole aim of creating a magazine that captures the excitement of talking about movies with good friends by bringing together impassioned, intelligent writing with striking illustration. The magazine has since become renowned for its independent ethos and iconic covers.

Published six times a year, the magazine dedicates its front section to an upcoming release, drawing inspiration from the themes and visual tone of the film. The back section features essential reviews of the latest theatrical releases, plus exclusive interviews, festival reports and more.

Today Little White Lies continues to look for new ways of combining cutting-edge editorial and graphic design while remaining dedicated to championing the best film talent from around the world.

In 2014 the Little White Lies team published their first book, ‘What I Love About Movies’, a compendium of undiluted movie passion in which some of the film industry’s greatest artists share what makes them movie fans, and in 2015 the LWLies Weekly app was launched, helping our readers to discover more great movies wherever they are.
