Anna Smith is a film critic and broadcaster and the host of all-female film review show Girls On Film in which she discusses film with female critics and interviews actors and directors about their work. She is President of the UK Critics’ Circle and a regular film critic for BBC News, Sky News, BBC Radio, Metro, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Sight & Sound, Empire and more.
If you stayed up to watch the Oscars this year, you will have seen Anna commentating from Sky Cinema’s sofa – and if you browse through Metro newspaper in the morning, you’ll have read her ’60 Seconds’ interviews. Anna hosts Q&As with film stars in cinemas all over London.
Before specialising in film, Anna was the first woman to become the editor of a UK dance music magazine, Wax. She dedicated herself to film criticism in 2000. Her twitter is @annasmithjourno.
