Chase Whale co-founded the popular independent film website, GordonandtheWhale.com where he remained Editor-in-Chief until August, 2011. On behalf of GATW, he covered Cannes, Sundance, SXSW, the Toronto International Film Festival and Comic-Con, along with junkets in London, Toronto and other parts of the world. In 2009, NBC named him one of the 25 most interesting people in Dallas, along with Erykah Badu and Nolan Ryan. Later that year, The Wrap listed him as one of 30 Movie Insiders to Follow Right Now On Twitter, with Peter Travers and the late, great Roger Ebert. Since GATW’s departure, he’s programmed for the Alamo Drafthouse, Fantastic Fest, Rooftop Film and the Sundance Film Festival, worked in film distribution for Cinedigm in New York, and his reviews, interviews, and editorials have been featured on websites including Twitch, Film.com, MTV’s Next Movie, Film Threat, Indiewire’s The Playlist, We Got This Covered, Latino Review, Dallas Observer, Culture Map and Central Track. Whale is a member of Rotten Tomatoes, Criticwire and the Dallas-Forth Worth Film Critics Association.
