AFI Fest Principals Kuo, Rogers & Wildman Depart Festival

AFI Fest’s principals have announced their departure from the festival following what was broadly considered a successful 2009 edition this past fall despite budgetary constraints and a move. Artistic Director Rose Kuo and Festival Producer David Rogers in addition to the event’s Head of Press and Public Relations John Wildman have ended their involvement with the festival. “It has been a privilege to lead AFI Fest and work with the exceptional members of the festival team,” commented Kuo in a statement. “We have succeeded in reshaping the festival and, I hope, reaffirming its place among leading festivals. Now it is time for me to go in a new direction.” indieWIRE will have more later. [Brian Brooks]
