Scarlet to Middle East fest


Variety‘s Ali Jaafar has it that former Tribeca Film Festival programming head Peter Scarlet (who quickly left the fest he programmed weeks before it’s set to open) has landed at the Middle East Film Festival.

Scarlet takes over from former Slamdance founder Jon Fitzgerald, who helped launch the Abu Dhabi fest in 2007. The Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage, which backs the fest, did not renew Fitzgerald’s two-year contract.
