Manori is a London-based writer and editor covering the world of film and television. She is International Editor at Broadcast, a global-facing weekly covering the UK's TV business. She was formerly News Editor of Toronto-based magazine realscreen, where she followed all things factual and documentary. She is known to throw a wicked Oscar party (which now starts at midnight).
Born in Sri Lanka with stints in Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia, Manori moved from her home in Vancouver to Toronto to complete her Master of Arts in sociology from McMaster University, followed by a Master of Journalism at Ryerson University. She later interned at The Globe and Mail, enRoute magazine and the National Post, where she got her start in film coverage and criticism.
She has covered the Sundance Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) and the Camden International Film Festival, as well as the MIPTV and MIPCOM markets and Realscreen Summit.
She'd have liked to become a yoga teacher, but her most impressive pose is savasana. So here we are.
