Hello, I’m Bradley J. Dixon. I’m a 📝 writer, 🤔 critic, 🎬 film programmer, 🎙 radio host and 🔊 audio producer from Melbourne, Australia.
I’m an editor of the film journal Senses of Cinema, and was formerly a co-founder and editor of The Essential, a two-time AFCA Award winning online publication of film and music criticism which published the work of over a dozen young writers. As a freelance critic, my writing on cinema and pop culture has been published in Bright Wall/Dark Room, Junkee, Film Blerg and elsewhere.
I am a member of the Australian Film Critics Association and the committee of the Melbourne Cinémathèque, and have served on the feature film programming panels for the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival (HRAFF).
I have also hosted or appeared on podcasts including The Last Picture Show, Radio Video, and It Was a Very Good Year. You can occasionally hear me hosting The Graveyard Shift or Room With a View on Melbourne’s 3RRR Radio.
I’m currently a PhD candidate in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University, and a member of the Screen & Sound Cultures collaborative research group. My research focuses on persona and practice in comedy media.
I’m available for freelance assignments, panel discussions, festival juries, Q&A moderation, podcast production or film programming opportunities. You can find me on Twitter at @bradleyjdixon or get in touch via email.
