Fade to Black: Making Your Voice Heard in Film Journalism

Now more than ever, people are able to make careers reviewing and talking about films, whether on YouTube, blogs, or online publications. But according to the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at the University of Southern California, only 3.7 percent of reviews were written by non-white female critics and 13.1 percent written by non-white male critics.

Conversations about film are still being held without people of color and especially without women of color.

This impacts what movies are getting attention, getting good reviews, and what filmmakers go on to make more movies. But what is preventing film analysis from being more diverse? In this panel, we will talk about Zena Dixons’s career as a journalist and film critic, advice on how to get into covering films and festivals, and how to separate yourself from the crowd of people shouting their opinions about films on the internet and widen who gets to talk about the media in our lives.
