You may notice things look a little different around here. Welcome to the relaunched and refreshed IndieWire, just in time for our 20th anniversary. In addition to our new owners at PMC, we’ve got a new logo, a new layout, and improved design that should make it even easier to read our site.
We’ve also added to our staff: On the film side, deputy editor and chief critic Eric Kohn oversees a much bigger team that includes film editor Kate Erbland, senior film critic David Ehrlich, film reporter Graham Winfrey, and Toolkit editor Chris O’Falt.
Our growing TV team includes executive editor Michael Schneider, TV editor Liz Shannon Miller, and TV critic Ben Travers.
Anne Thompson, our editor at large, oversees awards coverage, which also sees the contributions of below-the-line and animation writer Bill Desowitz. Tom Bruggemann is our box office contributor; Steve Greene is our able special projects editor, and we’re adding Judith Dry as our digital media critic. And we have longtime PMC stalwart William Earl as our digital director, who oversees the news staff of Vikram Murthi, Liz Calvario, and Michael Nordine, and social media editor Zack Sharf, to help us bring it all together.
We’re also proud to have Hulu, and the new season of “Casual,” as our relaunch partner. While it’s a terrific show, it also exemplifies how much has changed in the world we cover: It’s a great TV series, produced by a digital platform, and overseen by one of the best indie filmmakers.
Our 20-year history mirrors the evolution of creative independence, covering film, TV and digital for a passionate audience of fans, creators and the industry. We want to continue to provide that voice, and we hope our new site and the scope of our staff reflects that. Our goal is to cut through the noise and help you find what you need.
