Catherine Springer

Catherine is a shameless child of the ‘80s who discovered her passion for movies when she was 12 and has never looked back. As the daughter of an American diplomat, she spent the first 18 years of her life as an international nomad, but, when it came time to choose a college and set down roots, there was no other option than Los Angeles, a true industry town where movies touch and flavor everything. She wouldn’t be anywhere else. The only thing she loves as much as watching movies is writing about them, and her reviews have been seen in the Glendale News-Press, Magill’s Cinema Annual and on Prodigy. 15 years ago, she started her own her own movie blog, CathsFilmForum.com, which has been her pride and joy. And, although she loves sports, there is no better season than Oscar season. She owes everything to Tootsie for lighting the flame and to Premiere Magazine for keeping it lit.
