In a managerial realignment at the Tribeca Film Festival, the six year old event's executive director Peter Scarlet has been named Artistic Director of the festival, while managing director Nancy Schafer has been promoted to co-executive director along with Paola Freccero, who has served as a consultant to the organization. Both will also hold the posts of Senior Vice Presidents of Tribeca Enterprises, TFF's co-founder Jane Rosenthal announced today. Rosenthal further announced that Jennifer Maguire Isham will shift to serve as EVP of Tribeca Enterprises (after serving as president of the Festival) to "help identify new business opportunities domestically and abroad." The role of festival president has been retired. Scarlet (who joined Tribeca in 2002), will continue to act as chief programmer of the festival in addition to the new responsibilities as Artistic Director. Schafer and Freccero will jointly oversee the day-to-day operations of the Festival, with Schafer overseeing film and industry operations and Freccero overseeing content production, website and special events. They will report to Jon Patricof, COO of Tribeca Enterprises on business affairs and Jane Rosenthal on all creative matters, according to the announcement. [Brian Brooks]
