Twitch Film, also known simply as Twitch, is a Canadian English language website featuring news and reviews of mainly international, independent and cult films.[1] The website was founded in 2004 by Todd Brown. In addition to films, the website covers various film festivals from Sundance, Toronto and Fantasia to Sitges, Cannes and the Berlinale.

Brad Miska of Bloody Disgusting wrote that Twitch "...quickly established itself as the online world’s leading source for international, independent, cult, arthouse and genre film news, review and discussion."[2] He also wrote: "Over the years I have become increasingly impressed by what Todd Brown has done with Twitch Film, he has cornered the market for all edgy international releases and has given life to foreign films that might never have seen the light here in the States."[2] Ain't It Cool News has linked to Twitch Film pages on multiple occasions and quoted a Twitch editor among its list of "critics" on the appearance at Sundance 2010.[3][4] [5]

Twitch has a large body of writers who reside in most major film markets in the world, including the United States, Canada, Hong Kong/China, South Korea, Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom.[6]
