“I couldn’t be more pleased to be working with indieWIRE and SnagFilms, which have both proven to be innovative movers and shakers in the online space,” says Thompson.
IndieWIRE has been referred to as the “best indie crossroads” by esteemed critic Roger Ebert. IndieWIRE’s parent company, SnagFilms, features hundreds of free, nonfiction film on the Web. Despite Thompson’s move, readers can still expect expert analysis from the blog, as she will continue to focus on the business of film and current trends. Thompson will bring great industry insight, with more than two decades of experience.
IndieWIRE editor Eugene Hernandez says that “Anne is the leading voice from Hollywood. She is an informed veteran with a top notch editorial track record and a powerful Rolodex.”
