Film Becomes Her aims to approach our work in a way that sets us apart from other publications, casting a light on the importance of diversity and inclusivity in cinema.

 
 
 
 
 

Meet the Team

Samantha Wolfe, Editor-in-Chief

Samantha is from Denver, Colorado, where she lives now. In her free time, she writes for the independent the music publication MNSTRM Media. Her favorite movies are any horror flicks featuring a woman going batshit, campy classics from the late 60’s and early 70’s, and Legally Blonde. She goes crazy for basically every actress, including but not limited to Meryl Streep, Tessa Thompson, and Bette Davis. She is currently getting her bachelor’s in English, and hopes to later major in Film Studies. She dreams of someday becoming a screenwriter, or more realistically, a film journalist.

His favorites outside of that genre are Scream, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and John Wick. (He, as is the case with most of us, is in love with Keanu Reeves.) In his free time you can usually catch him watching Z-Grade horror films.
