Quirky. Awkward. Offbeat.


Reel Artsy is a steady appreciation of independent cinema, television, and music. We only share the good stuff. The scenes that linger with us long after the end credits roll, the music that makes us want to sing out, the shows that don't let us miss an episode, and the innovative filmmakers that keep us eagerly awaiting their next project. If you're looking celebrity gossip you won't find it here because our focus is on the films themselves.

If there's an awkwardly cute scene it's our goal to share it with you.

Some of our favorites actors include Zooey Deschanel, Michael Cera, Rashida Jones, Zachary Levi, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And the list is ever-growing.

Reel Artsy is based in Detroit (Lansing) and Los Angeles but some of our contributors blog from across the country (as well as Canada).

We're in no rush...we're like a quiet river that's flowing with noteworthy films. Some new, some old, and some classic. We like to keep you updated with current industry news but we tend to steer away from heaps of casting news, spoilers, and speculations. We enjoy list-making and drawing attention to emerging filmmakers, actors, and bands.

Bottom line: We heart quirky films. And huckabees. Yeah we said it.
