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 has served on its juries in Seattle, Palm Springs, San Sebastian and Gijon. She attended the first FIPRESCI colloquium on Russian Film in St Petersburg and has tutored young critics in workshops at Edinburgh International Film Festival, Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and Miskolc Cinefest. She has recently be on the juries for the annual East - West. The Golden Arch Eurasian film awards and the Arab Cinema Centre Critics' Awards.
She is a Tomatometer critic at Rottentomatoes, and has written on film for outlets including The Times, The Telegraph and The Daily Record in the UK, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in Australia, The National in Abu Dhabi and Filmmaker Magazine in the US.
She thinks that distributors should be releasing the following in the UK: Delicate Balance, The Tale and Beautiful Things. You can also find her rambling (twambling?) over on Twitter (@NinjaWorrier) and LinkedIn. Email her (while taking her hat off) amber(chapeau)@eyeforfilm.co.uk
