Michael Brooke

Freelance film journalist and editor

I regularly contribute to Sight & Sound and the Journal of Film Preservation, as well as writing numerous booklet essays for such labels as Arrow, the BFI, Criterion, Eureka and Second Run, together with numerous one-off commissions. I was one of the creators of BFI Screenonline, produced the BFI's internationally acclaimed DVD compilations of the short films of the Quay Brothers and Jan Švankmajer, worked extensively on the Arrow Academy label from its 2011 launch until 2017, and have co-produced all of Powerhouse's Indicator releases since June 2017. I have also recorded commentaries for multiple releases, both solo (Arrow's 'The Night of the Shooting Stars'; Second Run's 'Black Peter') and in collaboration (Indicator's 'The Deadly Affair' and 'The Snorkel'). I've written about all kinds of world cinema, but have a particular interest in central-eastern European film.

Erica Enriquez


I'm a Sydney-based writer covering everything from travel, lifestyle, entertainment and anything in between. When I'm not writing, I'm still writing, developing copy and content for websites and marketing collateral. You can also find me blogging about all the amazing people and experiences that make up Sydney at Need more info? I'm a voracious eater. A somewhat successful drinker. An avid TV watcher. A nerdy film lover. A Tee Vee Snacks devourer. I support pro-social causes involving cultural engagement (I count travelling as one of them), and work towards my own development so I can help develop others. ** Disclaimer: Successful Oscar-nominated supermodel and world-class scientist are not terms widely associated with me.
