It has been a while since my last blog post. This is what happens when life gets in the way. But in the midst of working, earning and buying a house, it gave me a chance to re-evaluate this blogging biz.
So, I have decided not to re-post reviews on here but reserve this space for the odd rant or two. I will be retweeting and sharing reviews as and when they come online (respecting the embargo).
Which comes onto my next point of business….
I have been in the film journalism field for a good year or so and in amidst the various screenings, festivals and press conferences, I have met (and made friends with) some amazing people and really talented writers. But there is one thing that has always…concerned me (who am I kidding? It annoys me).
For a long time, I have felt that film blogging/reviewing/journalism is lacking in female film journalists. Not just that, ones that are proper-geeky about film. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of great female writers but they tend to specialise in certain genres such as horror and American classics. I am talking about those who can spend ages analysing the Marvel universe or get excited about the next Star Wars films…and if there are geeky film girls out there, they are not writers.
Since mid-2012, I have wanted to start something different for the girl film writers that just want to ‘geek’ out. This is what I have been referring to as ‘the revolution’.
I think now is the time to start planning….
To be continued.
