Village Voice Adds Film Writer

The Village Voice has named Stephanie Zacharek its principal film writer. Zacharek most recently worked as Movieline’s chief film critic. Prior to her time there, she was Salon’s lead film critic. Zacharek’s work has also been featured in publications such as Rolling Stone and New York.

“Here is a writer who cuts to the heart of the films she sees, one able to capture that elusive sense of what a film actually feels like while still finding urgent connections between it and the world outside the theater,” said Alan Scherstuhl, film editor of the Voice, in a statement. “For the Voice she’ll continue to cover the movies she’s most passionate about, whether wide releases, indie standouts, or local screenings.”

Zacharek begins her new role on April 24.
