The outreach department of WikiProject Film is a centralized work area for project recruitment and member interaction efforts. The major programs currently underway are a monthly project newsletter and a welcoming message for new members of the project; further ideas are always welcome, of course!

Unregistered usersEdit

Members of WikiProject Film are encouraged to invite unregistered users to register accounts on Wikipedia. Members can invite unregistered users by going to their user talk pages and pasting {{subst:Register|~~~~}} there. Please review unregistered users' contribution history to see if they have made a series of valid contributions to ensure that they are not dynamic IP addresses who may miss the invitation due to having a different IP address the next time they edit. Unregistered users who participate in talk page discussions should be especially invited as they are likely to be more responsive to invitations. Below are two links for identifying unregistered users:
