Alicia Malone is a film reporter, TV host, author and self-confessed movie geek. She first gained notice hosting movie-centric shows and reviewing films in her native Australia, before making the leap to Los Angeles at the end of 2010.

Since then, Alicia has appeared on the Today show, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, ABC’s Academy Awards Red Carpet Pre-show and many more as a film expert. Currently, she is a host on Turner Classic Movies, introducing the films on Sundays and Tuesdays. She is also a correspondent for Fandango, hosts her own movie podcast and appears as a host on the Criterion Channel streaming service.

Alicia is passionate about classic films, arthouse movies and supporting women in film. In 2015, Alicia gave a TEDx talk about the lack of women working in film and why that needs to change. In 2017, she was invited to give a second TEDx talk, expanding on the subject further.

Alicia has also spoken about women in film at festivals and conferences around America, and was named of one the 100 #WorthyWomen of 2016. Her first book ‘Backwards and in Heels’ about the history of women in Hollywood was published in 2017, and her second book ‘The Female Gaze’ released in 2018.

Alicia has traveled the world to cover the BAFTAs, the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival and SXSW. She has been on the juries of the AFI Film Festival, Overlook Film Festival, HollyShorts and Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. Alicia is also a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the Los Angeles Online Critics Association and over the years has interviewed hundreds of movie stars and filmmakers working today.

She also wrote this bio, but knew it would sound way less egotistical if written in third person.
