Greetings

Hello, I am Sean Kelly, a freelance film writer and critic based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have been writing about film since August 2004 and it is something I really love doing. I put in hours of hard work writing about film, which includes covering various film festivals as accredited media.


My Focus

As I am based in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the residents of that city are my primary focus. In addition to reviewing weekly theatrical releases, I cover film festivals that happen throughout the year in the city. This includes the Toronto International Film Festival, the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, and the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. In recent years, I have expanded my festival coverage to include the Fantasia International Film Festival that occurs every summer in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
