Jane Crowther named new editor of Total Film

Jane Crowther has been appointed editor of Future’s Total Film magazine.

Crowther joined Total Film as associate editor in 2010 after writing for the title on a freelance basis for more than a decade, and has been acting editor of the magazine since July 2011.

‘As a reader, contributor and more recently, staff member of Total Film, it’s a genuine thrill to be made editor of the smartest, sharpest movie magazine in the market,” said Crowther.

‘Total Film is an amazing brand and I can’t wait to get stuck in to taking it to the next level.”

Crowther began her career at the age of 14 as a reviewer for The Yorkshire Post, and has since written for magazines including Flicks and Sky.

Clair Porteous, group publisher for Future’s Film portfolio, said: ‘Jane is a film thoroughbred. She has an excellent mix of gutsy editorial nous, second-to-none film contacts and a day-to-day working knowledge of the movie industry.

‘This makes her the perfect person to head up Total Film as we launch into a year of exciting development across the brand.”

The latest ABC circulation figures for Total Film showed a 5.6 per cent drop to 71,823.
