Film Festival Alliance is seeking new Board Members to begin service in January 2023. A slate of candidates will be presented to the membership for voting in January and announced at the Annual Meeting. Nominations are open now through November 18th.
Every year, we are excited to welcome a new group of Board members to serve on the Film Festival Alliance Board. The FFA Board members participate in, and advocate for, moving the organization forward, especially as film festivals and the film exhibition industry in general moves towards recovery. The Film Festival Alliance has been a crucial and driving force in the industry, and especially recently as the recovery efforts have also led to discussions of change and sustainability.
As FFA looks to 2023 and beyond, there is a focus on financial sustainability, industry advocacy, and continuing to build community. With that in mind, the Nominating Committee is particularly interested in folks with backgrounds in development, membership, and marketing + communications to bring their skillsets to the board. Further, the FFA Board is strongest when it represents the diversity of experiences in the festival community. In particular, the Nominating Committee strongly encourages people at all levels within their organization to apply, not just those at a Senior level.
