About Me

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet. My name’s Rachel and I’m a freelance film critic currently based out of Toronto, Canada with previous stop overs in London, England and sunny Singapore.

I’m the Film Editor for Exclaim!, Co-Founder of The Asian Cut, and a regular contributor for POV Magazine and That Shelf with additional bylines in The Globe and Mail, eliteGen Magazine, among others. I can be heard weekly on Contra Zoom Pod with Dakota Arsenault where we discuss movies new and old. I'm also a member of the Toronto Film Critics Association and received their 2021 Emerging Critic Award. In 2022, I served as a jury member for the Lavazza IncluCity Festival and Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, and was selected to be an international voter for the 80th Golden Globe Awards.
