Brooklyn Academy of Music Taps Ryan Werner as New Programmer for BAMcinematek

Ryan Werner, the film industry vet who spent seven years as an exec at IFC Entertainment, has been named programmer at large for the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s BAMcinematek.

Alongside BAM film programmers Nellie Killian and David Reilly, he’ll play a significant role in curating the annual BAMcinemaFest, which heads into its sixth edition in 2014. He’ll also have a hand throughout the year in Cinematek programming, including preems, preview screenings and events.

He’s also had gigs at Wellspring Media, Palm Pictures and Magnolia Pictures, and been a programmer for festivals in Woodstock and Philadelphia.

The 2014 BAMcinemaFest runs June 18-29.
