ASHLAND, Ore. – The Ashland Independent Film Festival has new leadership. Former AIFF Advisory Council member David Margulies has been picked to replace Anne Ashbey as Executive Director of the festival.
Margulies says they’re currently working on transitioning him into the role, but as director he says his plan is to stay the course.
“It’s not rocket science,” said Margulies. “We’re a local arts organization whose mission is to support independent films. I think the organization has done a tremendous job so far and I’m here to support that.”
The Ashland Independent Film Festival has grown consistently in the past few years, recently being named one of the top 25 coolest festivals in the world by MovieMaker Magazine.
Anne Ashbey will continue to work with the festival as a member of their Board of Directors.
