Stephanie Allain Named LAFF Director!

Thursday, January 26th, 2012 by

Stephanie Allain, known most notably for her role as producer to Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan, will be taking the helm as director of the LA Film Festival.

She succeeds Rebecca Yeldham, who voluntarily left her position for personal reasons. Stephanie will be working closely with Festival Managing Director Gloria Campbell and Festival Artistic Director David Ansen, as well as Associate Director of Programming Doug Jones, Senior Programmer Maggie Mackay and Programming Coordinator Jenn Wilson.

“Stephanie has served on the Film Independent Board of Directors since 2007 and been involved in many aspects of the organization. She’s chaired the Spirit Awards Nominating Committee and been a huge supporter of Project Involve, as well as our year-round educational programs,” said Co-President Sean Mc Manus. “Stephanie has a clear vision for the Festival, a stellar track record as a producer and a deep commitment to the Festival’s filmmaker-centric focus.”

With a mind the likes of Allain taking the helm there are sure to be innovations added to the Los Angeles Film Festival that please everyone and play to the audience as well as the filmmakers (Allain having experienced multiple roles in the industry herself).

The LA Film Fest runs from June 14, 2012 – June 24,2012. Visit their website for information on the festival and wish Stephanie Allain luck on driving this festival in the right direction!
