The reason is that the nonprofit organization, which has provided screenings of affordable screenings of critically acclaimed and award-winning movies in the Jim Santy Auditorium in the Park City Library and Education Center, is moving in a new direction, said board chairwoman Irene Cho.
The change requires the executive director to work full time and handle more responsibilities, she said.
"The board wants to find someone with grant writing, sponsorship and fundraising experience," Cho told The Park Record. "To do all that, we really need to raise money, and that's our biggest challenge."
Kim Page, who served as executive director for the past year, said she has enjoyed her time working with the film series.
"I wish them nothing but success," she said. "I feel good about the work that I have done while at the film series."
The split between the series and Page was amicable, Cho said.
"Kim has agreed to stay on until the board finds a replacement," she explained. "We're doing a national search."
In the meantime, the Park City Film Series is preparing to start its season on Sept. 7 with Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," starring Bill Murray and Frances McDormand as parents of 12-year-olds who fall in love and run away.
