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 news stand title which it is today. In February 2011, FILMINK became the first film magazine in the world to release an application for online tablet reading,[citation needed] with the magazine sold through the iTunes Store, and going through another major change. FILMINK is a consumer-based publication that covers all types of films, from arthouse releases to the biggest blockbusters. It focuses primarily on Australian films and covers every local release in detail.
