Voice Media Group announced today that Scott Foundas will join the staff of the Village Voice as its principal film writer.
Foundas spent the last three years as associate program director at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Before moving to New York, he was the film editor at the Voice's sister paper in Los Angeles, LA Weekly, from 2005 to 2009.
"I've long admired Scott Foundas' film writing and I'm delighted to be able to work with him again," said Christine Brennan, Voice Media Group executive editor. "With Scott in New York and Karina Longworth at our Los Angeles paper, we have a formidable pair of critics to lead the film coverage our papers are known for."
Foundas' film reviews and features will appear in all of the Voice Media Group's publications, as well as on their websites and mobile platforms. VMG maintains a strong commitment to film journalism, employing two fulltime writers, one fulltime editor, and many freelance contributors. Its member newspapers covered more than 750 films last year, printed weekly film features and interviews, and published dispatches from national and international film festivals.
"I am thrilled to be returning to the world of weekly movie reviewing and feature writing," said Foundas. "The VMG team of film critics publish exceptional work -- always lively and thought-provoking -- and I look forward to working alongside them."
Foundas will begin his new assignment December 3.
