Meyer Named to Replace Pence, Alongside Luddy, at Telluride Fest

By Indiewire | Indiewire September 4, 2006 at 8:26AM

Telluride Film Festival co-director Bill Pence, and his wife Stella Pence (managing director of the festival) are leaving their posts atop the festival they co-founded 33 years ago with Tom Luddy and James Card. The festival board announced today in Telluride that festival consultant and member of the board of governors Gary Meyer will join Luddy as co-director of the event, effective with the closing of this year's event on Monday. The timing of the announcement surprised attendees in Telluride this weekend, but Bill and Stella Pence indicated that they will remain advisors to the festival going forward. Meyer is perhaps best known as a co-founder of Landmark Theaters. He also runs San Francisco's Balboa theater and has vast film festival experience. [Eugene Hernandez]
