Carly MattoxFilm Writer + Community Organizer

I’m a graduate of the film curation MA at the National Film and Television School, with experience in editorial publication, digital production, and festival planning. I’m interested in cinema as a physical space of collective action and community organization, as well as the capacity of film to equip viewers with the language necessary to deconstruct narratives of capitalism. 

I write about girlhood, ritual, intimacy, dance, and the body. I’m especially engaged with these themes across work directed by female and non-binary directors; I am additionally invested in experimental narratives of autofiction within the documentary genre.
