Indie Feature Project ups two exex

Cotler named deputy director, Andrus membership director

NEW YORK — The Independent Feature Project has upped two of its executives, the org announced Wednesday.

Former director of development Ellen Cotler will assume the newly created position of IFP deputy director and will work closely with exec director Michelle Byrd on fund-raising and marketing drives and institutional growth.

Former membership coordinator Amy Andrus will step up to membership director, taking on duties previously performed by program and membership director Karen Schwartzman.

Change will allow Schwartzman, as program director, to concentrate solely on programming for the IFP’s various events.

The 20-year-old org holds conferences, film series and professional programs year-round for its 2,800 members. Annual events include the Independent Spirit Awards, the Classically Independent Film Festival and the Independent Feature Film Market, which is scheduled to run Sept. 15-22.
