Bill Condon Elected President of Film Independent

Film Independent, the non-profit arts organization that produces the Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, elected new officers Bill Condon, Rodrigo Garcia, Alan Poul and Stephanie Allain to its Board of Directors. 

The Board of Directors is comprised of leaders from the film community who serve in a volunteer capacity, and make strategic decisions on the direction and vitality of the organization. Director/producer Bill Condon (Kinsey, Gods and Monsters) will serve as President.  Writer/director Rodrigo Garcia (Mother and Child, In Treatment) will be the Vice President.  Director/producer Alan Poul (The Backup Plan, Six Feet Under, Rome) serves as Secretary, and producer Stephanie Allain (Black Snake Moan, Hustle & Flow, Biker Boyz) will be the new Treasurer.

"Getting independent movies made and seen is always a struggle, and we've entered a particularly difficult period.  I look forward to working with Rodrigo, Alan, Stephanie, and our extraordinary Board to help Film Independent fulfil its mission of promoting the cause of independent filmmaking in this country," said Condon.

Condon and the team are joined by new Board members Joe Drake, DeVon Franklin, Sue Kroll, David Linde and Ted Mundorff.  Previous officers were actor/director/producer Vondie Curtis Hall (President), Troika Pictures Co-CEO Michael Helfant (Vice President), One Way Out Media's Tom Ortenberg (Treasurer), and writer/director Kasi Lemmons (Secretary), with all remaining on the Board.

"We are so honoured to have such talented and visionary people on our Board of Directors, who are passionate about independent films and Film Independent," said Executive Director Dawn Hudson.  "We're excited to welcome our new officers as we look to the future and determine how we can best serve the changing needs of the independent film community."

Film Independent's current Board of Directors is comprised of the following industry leaders: Stephanie Allain, Randy Barbato, Adriene Bowles, Effie T. Brown, Bill Condon, Vondie Curtis Hall, Laura Dern, Joe Drake, DeVon Franklin, Sid Ganis, Rodrigo Garcia, Michael Helfant, Marcus Hu, Laura Kim, Sue Kroll, Kasi Lemmons, David Linde, Allan Mayer, Ted Mundorff, Gail Mutrux, Tom Ortenberg, Alan Poul, Peter Schlessel, Jonathan Sehring, Mary Sweeney and Forest Whitaker.
