About us

Marilyn Ferdinand (Illinois, USA)
“I started Ferdy on Films because I wanted to produce a publication-quality blog where I could indulge my love of writing and film at the same time, with total content, illustration, and layout control. I hope to provide unique content by following my offroad approach to film viewing and analysis and thereby fill a need that mainstream film sites may not.”

Roderick Heath (Lithgow, NSW, Australia)
“My desire in film criticism has always been to celebrate the cinema in its diversity, to explore the pleasures and mystique of good movies, and to tackle the cultural resonance of film as both an art form and a vehicle of entertainment. I love to look for signs of creativity and commitment in even the most demeaned genres, and also dig as deeply as I can into the meaning and method behind cinema’s most important works.”
