iW NEWS | Stanfield Taking the Reigns at Nantucket Fest

Colin Stanfield has been named Executive Director at the Nantucket Film Festival, stepping in upon the departure of longtime event head Jill Burkhart, who will become chair of the fest’s board. A former fest producer at SilverDocs in 2005, Stanfield previously spent five years running international programs for the IFP in New York. His recent work has been as a producer at Amerique Film in NYC. Mystelle Brabbee continues in her role as the longtime artistic director of the event. “With the Nantucket Film Festival’s mature legacy, its unique position in the industry and the incredibly strong brand that the island itself brings, I believe our event is positioned extremely well as we move closer to our 15th year,” says incoming Executive Director, Colin Stanfield. “I have tremendous respect for returning Artistic Director Mystelle Brabbee who is responsible in no small part for our great past successes, and I am very happy that her sharp instincts, passion and personality will continue to shape our future.” [Eugene Hernandez]
