Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Appoints Coombes as Fest Director

Jaie Laplante, the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival‘s co-director and director of festival operations will be leaving his posts to take a position with the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, while program director Carol Coombes will assume the title of festival director. With Laplante’s departure — though he will remain on the festival’s board of directors and remain an active member of the programming committee — a new position of managing director was created by the MGLFF board to assume leadership of the administrative, marketing and development aspects of the festival and a candidate search is now on the way. A complete job posting for MGLFF’s new managing director can be found on the festival’s website. The 9th annual festival will be held April 27 – May 6, 2007 in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. [Brian Brooks]
