iW NEWS | Maizel Named Newport Executive Director

Jennifer Maizel has been named the new executive director at the Newport International Film Festival. Maizel had worked at the festival, which takes place in June in Newport, Rhode Island, as director of guest services in 2006. Most recently, she served, for the past three years, as managing director of the Sarasota Film Festival. “I’m very excited about Newport,” commented Maizel in a statement. “I think my main goal is to continue the strong relationship between the festival and the community, not just the Newport community but the state and the region. And I want the festival to have a strong relationship with the film industry. That’s important.” [Brian Brooks]
