About Natalie

I’m a freelance film writer based in Birmingham, UK. I have over six years experience reviewing films for local newspapers both online and in print. My writing has been syndicated across JPI Media websites in the Midlands including the Mansfield and Ashfield Chad, the Hucknall Dispatch and the Derbyshire Times.

I’m particularly interested in film adaptation and the ways cinema, the novel and other art forms interact. My writing on this topic has appeared in Little White Lies, Hyperallergic and Bright Wall/Dark Room. I've also provided related events coverage of the London Film Festival, Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, Derby Film Fest and Sheffield Doc Fest.  

I’m currently writing a book about visual storytelling.
