Alicia Malone
Host, FilmStruck

Alicia Malone is a host on FilmStruck, a film reporter, TV host, author, and all around movie geek. She first gained notice hosting movie-centric shows and reviewing films in her native Australia, before making the leap to Los Angeles in 2011.

Since then, Alicia has appeared on CNN, the Today show, MSNBC, NPR and many more as a film expert. Currently, she is a correspondent for Fandango, and the creator and host of their weekly show, Indie Movie Guide. And in 2016, Alicia came on board as a host on FilmStruck, a dream job come true for this cinephile.

She is passionate about classic films, independent movies and supporting women in film. In September 2015, she gave a TEDx talk on the lack of women in movies and why that needs to change. In 2017, she was invited to give a second TEDx talk, where she spoke about the hidden stories of the earliest women working in Hollywood. Alicia was named of one the 100 Worthy Women of 2016, and her first book, ‘Backwards and in Heels: The Past, Present and Future For Women Working in Film’ was released in August 2017.

Alicia has traveled the world to cover the BAFTAs, the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Telluride, SXSW and Comic-Con, and has interviewed nearly every movie star you could name, hugging many, including Oprah. Hey, she’s only human. She also wrote this bio, but knew it would sound way less egotistical if written in third person.
