Jennie Kermode

A full time writer, part time academic and sometime activist, Jennie is content director at Eye For Film, which often means that she has to pick up the awful stuff nobody else wants to review. The good side of this is that it gives her the chance to identify undiscovered gems.

Jennie enjoys a wide range of different genres and would probably say that her favourite film is Picnic At Hanging Rock. Before coming to Eye For Film, she spent two years with Movie Gurus. She has also written on film for the likes of The Independent, Studio Magazine and the Directory of World Cinema, and she blogs on politics at Den Of The Hyena.

Jennie is a member of the Online Film Critics Society.
