Stephen A Russell
Imported from Glasgow, Stephen A Russell is a writer and critic who has called Melbourne home for more than a decade. After a spell working at the sadly departed Fairfax Community Network, he has been crafting a freelance career for the previous five years. Stephen regularly contributes film-focused content to SBS Movies and SBS Sexuality as well as Metro magazine, The Music, The New Daily, Fairfax, and The Lowdown Under.
Stephen’s dulcet Scottish brogue and the odd rogue snort can be heard on his Friday spot on Noosa FM 101.3, as well as occasionally popping up on Radio National and queer radio station Joy 94.9 FM. He also conducts Q&A sessions with visiting directors and actors for the likes of Palace Cinemas, Nova, the Lido and the Classic, as well as for film festivals including MIFF and the Melbourne Queer Film Festival.
