Dorothy Woodend is the culture editor for The Tyee. Born in Vancouver, Dorothy was raised on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake, where nothing ever happened. She and her twin sister hightailed to Vancouver after graduating, where they lived on bags of frozen french-fries and worked a series of crappy jobs.
Dorothy holds degrees in English from Simon Fraser University and Film Animation from Emily Carr University. She has worked in many different cultural disciplines, including producing contemporary dance and new music concerts, running a small press, and writing for newspapers and magazines across Canada and the U.S.
In 2004, Dorothy became The Tyee’s film critic. She has worked with the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Whistler Film Festival and the National Film Board of Canada. She is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, The Vancouver Film Critics Circle, and the Alliance of Women Film Journalists. Dorothy is also the senior festival advisor for DOXA Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver.
