Eric Marchen

Eric Marchen is the Host and Producer of Cinema Seen. No stranger to Rogers TV, Eric also played host to The Film Slate and was a regular guest on daytime as the Friday Favourite Film Fan. He has been with Rogers TV Durham Region for over 12 years both behind and in front of the camera. He also co-hosts the Untitled Movie Podcast with Matt Rorabeck on a weekly basis. Eric’s background includes a three year diploma in Broadcast and Film where he graduated with honours. His vast knowledge of film means he is not easily stumped when it comes to movies, whether a current blockbuster or past unknown. Previously this film critic wrote for online outlets such as The Arts Guild, CHUD.com, Movie Knight, and Toronto Film Scene. In 2013 and 2014, Eric jumped at the chance to be the International Programmer for the Annual Scarborough Film Festival (now known as Scarborough Worldwide Film Festival). And not long afterwards, he was invited and joined the Broadcast Film Critics' Association. He's been a jury member for the Toronto Youth Shorts in 2016 and the 2014 Donny Awards. When not working, Eric can be found in, you guessed it, one of the GTA’s many theatres reviewing the most recent releases.
