IFC Entertainment has named former Miramax acquisition exec Arianna Bocco as the company's vice president of acquisitions and production, IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring announced Monday. Bocco will report directly to Sehring. In her newly appointed role, Bocco is charged with "identifying and pursuing finished feature films that support the company's overall motion picture acquisition strategy of aggressively growing its theatrical release slate with larger, commercial films," in addition to "new projects that contribute to a diverse new production slate." Bocco will also spearhead the acquisition of twenty-four films a year for the IFC First Take banner, IFC Entertainment's day-and-date division. "Jonathan has a tremendous vision for the company and I look forward to my role in helping realize this vision," commented Bocco, who most recently served as head of the independent feature packaging division of the Gersh Agency in New York City in a statement. "It's an exciting growth period for IFC and I'm happy to join at this stage, knowing that great achievements lie ahead." [Brian Brooks]
