FILMINK is an Australian film magazine published monthly by FKP International Exports. It was founded by current publisher Dov Kornits and Colin Fraser in July 1997, in Sydney. The magazine has been through many changes over the course of its existence, beginning as a black-and-white free press publication, and evolving into the glossy, beautifully presented news stand title which it is today. In February 2011, FILMINK became the first movie magazine in the world to release an application for online tablet reading, with the magazine sold through the iTunes Store, and enjoying another major change in its continuing evolution. With the tagline of "Australia's Best Movie Magazine", FILMINK is a consumer-based publication which covers all types of movies, from arthouse releases to the biggest blockbusters. It has a particularly strong focus on Australian films, and covers every local release in detail. Utilising Australian journalists both locally and abroad, FILMINK takes a fresh, unbiased and highly original approach to film every month.
