Film Independent, the non-profit filmmakersÕ organization that produces the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Spirit Awards, announced today the reorganization and expansion of its staff.

James E. Herr recently joined Film Independent as the Director of Diversity. For nearly a decade, Jim worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Most of his work there was in Corporate Social Responsibility where he managed the companyÕs philanthropic outreach.

Jim serves on the board of directors of East West Players, the nation's oldest, continually producing theater of color. He also serves on the board of Visual Communications, the country's leading Asian American media arts organization where he additionally has been a programmer for the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.

Josh Welsh has been upped to Director of Talent Development for Film Independent, where he oversees the organizationÕs Filmmaker Labs, Project:Involve, and Fast Track, as well as works with the filmmakers who receive cash grants at the Spirit Awards.
