About Film Actually

Hey There!

Thank you for visiting Film Actually!

Film Actually was founded in December 2009 by editor/writer Shane Slater. As a cinephile and lover of all things Oscar, Shane started the site as an outlet to express his appreciation for cinema. From its humble beginnings as a space for brief thoughts and awards coverage, the site has flourished into a "one-stop shop" for a variety of content.

Shane is currently based in his birthplace Jamaica, after spending years living in the US, St. Vincent and South Africa. When he isn't watching films or writing about them, he enjoys good food, traveling and playing squash.

If you are interested in contacting the editor, please email shaneslater88(at)gmail.com.

You can also find Shane's work at The Awards Circuit, where he specializes in world cinema as well as other general entertainment coverage.

Shane is a proud member of the African American Film Critics Association and is an approved Rotten Tomatoes critic.
