Matt Dentler is leaving Cinetic Rights Management's FilmBuff to join iTunes, where he'll oversee partnerships with independent film partners.
As head of programming at FilmBuff, Dentler managed the VOD releases of titles like the Polish Bros. title "For Lovers Only" and Ed Burns' "Nice Guy Johnny," both of which were also success stories for the iTunes platform.
Dentler is a graduate of UT Austin's film program; he began working for SXSW in 2000 (his freshman year) as an intern; eventually, he became the head of the festival. He joined FilmBuff in 2008.
Currently based in New York, Dentler will relocate to Los Angeles this month.
