Publicity Chief Liza Burnett Fefferman Leaves Radius-TWC

Executive vice president of publicity Liza Burnett Fefferman is leaving Radius-TWC after four years at the boutique indie label.

Fefferman was the driving force behind the promotions of all Radius titles, and helped steer documentaries “20 Feet From Stardom” and “Citzenfour” to win at the Academy Awards. In an email message to colleagues, Fefferman did not say where she planned to work in the future.

“It has been great working with you, and I look forward to doing so again in my next endeavor,” Fefferman wrote. “More info. on that soon.”

The company behind acclaimed titles as “Snowpiercer,” “It Follows” and “The Hunting Ground” is in a transition phase. Last fall, co-founders Tom Quinn and Jason Janego left to form their own company. Radius functioned as an arm of the Weinstein Company, with the goal of debuting films across multiple platforms, as well as in theaters.

In an interview with Variety in November, Weinstein Company leaders said Radius’ operations would be folded into the main studio with fewer employees.

Prior to joining Radius, Fefferman spent five years as SVP of publicity for Samuel Goldwyn Films and ATO Pictures. She did previous stints at the Weinstein Company and Dan Klores Communications, where she founded DKC/Film.
