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. 

What is SK on Movies Premium?

To help cover the costs of running the site, you can become a patron and get an extra bonus for doing so. This can include exclusive premium posts on the site or an exclusive podcast feed. I'll be adding new perks all the time, so make sure to pick one that is right for you and thank you for supporting my writing.

Where Does the Money Go?

The money earned by patrons are divided into the following areas, based on my current greatest need:
  • Web Hosting and Domain Costs
  • Movie Tickets
  • Travel and accommodation to film festivals outside of Toronto (i.e. Fantasia in Montreal)
  • Equipment for interviews/podcasting
  • Contributions to other Patreon creators

$35 of $58 per month
I'm earning enough to pay the creators I support and my yearly hosting and domain costs.
