The Nantucket Film Festival has tapped fest vet Colin Stanfield as its exec director, replacing Jill Burkhart who will move to chair the org’s board of directors.
Stanfield produced the 2005 AFI SilverDocs fest and managed international programs for Gotham’s IFP.
Stanfield will immediately start prepping the island’s summer fest, which focuses on screenwriters with screenings, panels and readings. The annual Screenwriters Tribute has honored such scribes as Judd Apatow, Steve Martin, Charlie Kaufman and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.
The Nantucket Film Festival runs June 18-22.
