Films Center gets a new director
November 28, 2014
"The board of directors is fully confident that Elisabeth will be an excellent steward of the Utah Film Center’s mission, a leader and advocate for independent voices, and will develop rich and meaningful relationships with Utah Film Center supporters and partners," said Geralyn Dreyfous, Utah Film Center founder and board chair.
Having worked in marketing and public relations for the past nineteen years with companies including Magicspace Entertainment/Broadway Across America and Sundance Institute, Nebeker brings with her a background that includes strong communication and strategic planning skills. Nebeker also serves on numerous boards and has been a Salt Lake City resident for twenty years.
Nebeker says of her new appointment, "The Utah Film Center is a dynamic organization and I’m honored to have been selected to continue to support existing programming and explore new growth opportunities. I’m excited to work with the board and staff to lead the Film Center into the future."
The Utah Film Center Board of Directors and a search committee, comprised of Salt Lake City community members, conducted an extensive regional search. Nebeker was unanimously recommended for her appointment and replaces Holly Yocom who departed the Film Center to fulfill a position with Salt Lake County.
The Utah Film Center is generously sponsored by the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks Program, and Zions Bank.
