Raddon takes LAIFF helm

Indie producer to o'see all aspects

The Los Angeles Independent Film Festival has appointed Richard Raddon its director and tapped Sundance press officer R.J. Millard director of marketing/publicity.

Raddon, a vet indie producer, will oversee all aspects of festival planning and format. His producing credits include the 1999 Sundance premiere “A Slipping Down Life,” starring Lili Taylor and Guy Pearce; “Shooting Lily,” winner of the Grand Prize at the 1997 South by Southwest Film Festival; and Arthur Borman’s ” … And God Spoke.”

Millard, who will continue to serve as the press officer for the Sundance Film Festival — where he has worked for the past five years — will head marketing and publicity for the sixth LAIFF, which unspools April 13-18.

Robert Faust, who created the LAIFF in 1995, has stepped down as festival director but will play an advisory role.
