Mentoring at MWFF

It is with great pleasure that I’ll be joining Stephanie Van Schilt (pictured right) as a mentor of burgeoning female voices in film criticism as part of the Critics Lab at the upcoming Melbourne Women in Film Festival (20th to 23rd February 2020).

Looking forward to learning a thing or two myself from some fresh, fertile filmic minds (mmmmmmmmmm… brains…)

Women are Horror: an interview with me

As part of the Melbourne Women in Film Festival (MWFF) – in which I spoke on the Delightfully Dark panel – I was interviewed by Critics Lab participant Kate MacDonald about the relationship between women and horror.

My argument is that woman ARE horror, and I think I make a pretty good case of it, as proven by the featured image of myself accompanying this blog post.

Delightfully Dark – MWFF panel discussion

This Saturday 23rd February, I’ll be joining four other women – Susie Porter, Donna McRae, Alison Adriano and Janice Loreck (moderator) – for a panel discussion as part of the Melbourne Women in Film Festival (MWFF), exquisitely titled Delightfully Dark.

But why Delightfully Dark, you might ask?

Because we’re tackling the subject of (delightful) women in filmmaking, particularly those who venture into weird, transgressive and extreme cinema. What does the dark side look like for women creatives? And can it be empowering to depict darkness onscreen?

It all takes place at ACMI, 12.30pm. Please come along and don’t be afraid to say ‘hello darkness, my old friend.’
