David Poland

The FIU Miami Film Festival has tapped David Poland as its new director. Poland replaces Nat Chediak, who has run the festival for the 18 years since its inception. Unlike Chediak, who was a full-time employee of the fest, Poland has a part-time post.

A Miami native, Los Angeles-based Poland currently pens the Internet entertainment-industry column “The Hot Button.”
