Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around film geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.
The day after graduating high school, Alicia moved to Sydney and got a job at a video store, where she took to advising customers of the correct movie choices, whether it was asked for or not. Soon, she scored a position at the TV station Channel Seven, where she stayed for 6 years in a variety of production roles.
After responding to an ad for a job at cable TV station Movie Network Channels, Alicia took up a role as host, producer and editor. There she created and fronted several movie-centric shows, including Movie Juice and Premiere, and hosted live red carpet events for the AFI Awards and Tropfest Short Film Festival. Alicia was also seen weekly on the national breakfast show The Morning Show as their movie expert, was heard talking about films on radio station Triple M, and her written reviews were published in Filmink Magazine.
In late 2010 Alicia quit everything, packed two suitcases and moved to Hollywood to chase her dreams in the film capital of the world. Since living in Los Angeles Alicia has worked steadily as a freelance film journalist and critic; her work has been seen on America's E!, MTV, Fandango, CNBC, Hollywood Today Live, Access Hollywood, HLN's The Daily Share, AMC Movie Talk, AMCi Indie Spotlight, IGN, NBC News, Reelz, EPIX, Celebuzz, Hello Giggles, Schmoes Know Movies Show. And Australia's Foxtel Movie Show, Today Show, Movie Juice, Studio 10, Movie Network Channels, Event Cinemas, Picture This on Go!, Scoopla, Filmink Magazine, Moviehole, Geek Bomb, plus Showbiz Correspondent on New Zealand's Breakfast On One. She was also the creator, producer and host of Film Junkies on BiteSizeTV.
Currently you can find her as a film correspondent on: Fandango, Profiles with Malone and Mantz, Screen Junkies, Movie Juice Australia, Breakfast on One, Event Cinemas Australia, Scoopla Australia and her own YouTube account, Movies Are My Jam.
Alicia has traveled the world to cover the Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival and Comic-Con, she's reported from the red carpets of the Emmys, the Golden Globes and the Oscars, and has interviewed nearly every movie star you could name — ending the interview with her signature hug. Hey, she’s only human. Alicia is passionate about supporting independent movies, classic films, documentaries and women in film.
In 2015, she delivered a TED talk on the lack of girls in film and why that needs to change, at TEDx San Juan Islands.
She also wrote this bio, but knew it would sound way less egotistical if written in third person.
