Ben Kendrick is the VP of Content at Rise at Seven and former Content Director (but still current film critic) of Screen Rant, CBR, and Collider as well as host of Podcast X, the Screen Rant Underground, and Total Geekall. He is a member of the Denver Film Critics Society as well as the Online Film Critics Society - with work referenced, cited, or syndicated on CNN, Wikipedia, Huffington Post, Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, Yahoo, and Business Insider, among others.
A graduate of the New School’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program, Ben has been passionate about movies ever since standing in line for a midnight showing of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade when he was eight years-old. Through that passion (along with a cutting-edge understanding of SEO) he lead Screen Rant for over a decade: growing the site from a small start-up to a massive publishing platform, serving 4 million+ visitors everyday.
After nearly 14 years as a journalist, Ben recently joined Rise at Seven (the Search-First Creative Agency), heading the firm's U.S. expansion and building-out the content marketing offering.
