Hello, I’m Bradley J. Dixon. I’m a 📝 writer, 🤔 critic, 🎬 film programmer, 🎙 radio host and 🔊 audio producer from Melbourne, Australia.
I’m currently completing an Honours degree in Media at RMIT University, studying the suburban grotesque in Australian cinema. I am a member of the Australian Film Critics Association and the committee of the Melbourne Cinémathèque, and since 2016 have served on the feature film programming panel for the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival (HRAFF).
I am the co-founder and editor of The Essential, a two-time AFCA Award winning online publication of film and music criticism which has 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 host two podcasts for The Essential: Radio Video, a monthly music and movie review show, and It Was a Very Good Year, a real-time pop culture history podcast. You can also occasionally hear me hosting The Graveyard Shift or Room With a View on Melbourne’s 3RRR Radio.
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.
