Reporting and Feedback

If you believe any information published on The Departure Film is inaccurate or misleading, please contact us at We take all reports of inaccuracies seriously and will investigate them promptly to ensure our content remains trustworthy and reliable.

  1. Fixing Small Mistakes: We’ll usually correct the error directly in the article. We’ll also add a quick explanation at the end, mentioning what was wrong and when it was fixed.

  2. Fixing Big Mistakes: For serious errors that change the meaning of the story, we might add a special editor’s note at the beginning to highlight the correction.
  3. In the Worst Case: In very rare cases, if an article is completely wrong or misleading, we may have to remove it entirely. We’ll replace it with a notice explaining why we took it down.

*The corrected information will be clearly marked with a note like “Updated: [date]” to show when the change was made.*
