Marc Fennell

Marc Fennell is an Australian film critic and broadcaster.


Film reviewing

In 2002, Fennell was a winner of the first AFI Young Film Critics Competition.[1] He then became the film critic and reporter for Sydney radio station FBi Radio from 2003-2006.

During this period Fennell was selected as one of four presenters (along with Megan Spencer, Jaimie Leonarder, and Fenella Kernebone) of a revamped version of SBS's long-running The Movie Show following the departure of former hosts, David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz, in mid 2004.[1] Although Fennell was given a separate role to the other three hosts, handling DVD reviews in his own segment, he was described after the new format's debut as the "most natural in front of a camera".[2] Fennell remained with the show until June, 2006, when the show went on hiatus, returning in a different format (and with a different team) in 2007.[3][4]

Fennell currently reviews film for multiple ABC Radio Stations including 702 ABC Sydney and the ABC's national youth broadcaster triple j. He also presented a weekly film segment called 'Flicked' on triple j tv. In addition, Fennell presents film reviews on the morning show The Circle.

Hungry Beast

Fennell is currently a reporter/presenter on the Andrew Denton produced show Hungry Beast, aired on ABC1. After Hungry Beast finished its run in 2010, Fennell was one of nine members of the team to be selected by Denton to develop online content for Zapruder's Other Films.[5] Prior to his engagement on Hungry Beast Fennell had worked with another of the presenters, Dan Ilic, developing a well known YouTube parody of the Freeview launch.[6]
