From 2005 - 2011, I worked as a film programmer and freelance producer of film festivals and screening events. Events I have produced include:
Scene: Brooklyn is a film and media arts program presented by the Brooklyn Arts Council. The event features work by Brooklyn filmmakers of all disciplines, and I was proud to be it's head programmer for three years, from 2009 - 2011.
Package Deals was a multidisciplinary music and film screening series bringing the best in film, art and music videos from selected cities and places around the world to New York City. Following a program's premiere, it then evolved into a "Touring Package," which traveled to international art house theaters and film festivals in the months to come. Each part of the series showcased feature films, shorts, music videos, and more from the world's most vibrant creative communities.
In addition to Package Deals' regular screenings and tour events, we partnered with the Icelandic Tourism Board and Iceland Naturally to program and produce the film festival component of their touring Taste of Iceland Festival, which brings Icelandic cuisine, music, art and films to major cities across North America.
Package Deals explored Iceland, Japan, Finland, Sweden and the Scandinavian and North American music scenes through their short film and music video programs. Support and guidance has been provided by institutions such as the Consulate General of Sweden in New York, The Tank, The Icelandic Tourism Board, Scandinavia House, The American Scandinavian Foundation, the Icelandic Film Center, The Center For Icelandic Art and companies such as Reyka Vodka and Svedka Vodka.
