I’m Hannah Deitch. I write about film, women, books, and whatever else catches my fancy. I live in Los Angeles.

I was born in Atlanta, GA, studied film, philosophy, and history at Sarah Lawrence College and Oxford, and lived in New York for 5 years before making LA my home. I received my Master’s degree in Arts Journalism from the University of Southern California, where I was Editor-in-Chief of Ampersand, an LA-based arts & culture magazine. At USC I was fortunate to study under LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan, as well as Pulitzer-winning critics like Howard Rosenberg and Tim Page. For my thesis project, titled “How to Suppress Women’s Filmmaking,” I had the opportunity to converse with some of my favorite film critics, including the NY Times’┬áManohla Dargis and TIME’s Stephanie Zacharek.
