The Miami Film Festival has hired Tiziana Finzi as director in a move to expand its international profile. Festival vet replaces Paris-born marketing exec Patrick de Bokay, whose contract was not renewed earlier this year.
For nine years Finzi was head of programming for the Locarno Film Festival. She also slotted pics for the Venice, Pesaro and Taormina film fests.
The Miami Film Festival unspools March 6-15.
