IFP drogs Gotham location tag

Org goes back to original title

In response to IFP/L.A.’s relaunch as Film Independent, or Find, IFP/New York has announced it will drop the location-specific tag from its title and be known henceforth only as IFP, the org’s original name.

The other five existing, independently operated Independent Feature Project chapters will keep their current titles.

The IFP branches in New York, Seattle, Minneapolis, Miami and Chicago are keeping busy, approving new chapters in Santa Fe, N.M., and Austin, Texas. Lyra Baron will head IFP/Santa Fe; Bret Branon and Krista Keosheyan lead the Austin effort.

Meanwhile, IFP Minneapolis/St. Paul will open the 7,500-square-foot Center for Media Arts this weekend.

IFP was founded in New York in 1979 and has 3,300 members.
