The Seattle International Film Festival has announced its new leadershipor at least half of it. With former director Helen Loveridge having departed back to her homeland of England, longtime SIFF man Carl Spence (who happens to be fluent in Japanese) has been promoted to the position of Artistic Director.

It’s a new position, essentially dividing the previous Executive Director post into two equal positions: Spence’s position and a Managing Director, who will oversee the day-to-day operations of the festival.

The fest is still on the hunt for a Managing Director.
