Amber Wilkinson

Being editorial director of Eye For Film means that Amber gets to go globetrotting to festivals quite often. While that may periodically limit her access to popcorn movies, it's probably better for her waistline that way, and she gets to watch a vast amount of world and independent cinema that everyone else would love, too, if only they gave it a go. She secretly likes to watch The Man With Two Brains and Blazing Saddles late at night to unwind.

Amber is a member of the Online Film Critics Society and FIPRESCI, the international federation of film critics and recently served on the FIPRESCI jury at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.

She thinks that distributors are bonkers not to be releasing the following in the UK: Mother, I Love You, War Witch and Silver Tongues. You can also find her rambling (twambling?) over on Twitter (@NinjaWorrier).
