EUGENE HERNANDEZ LEAVES INDIEWIRE FOR LINCOLN CENTER
Eugene Hernandez, the editor-in-chief/co-founder of indieWIRE will be joining the Film Society of Lincoln Center as their director of digital strategy, according to an announcement sent out today by FSLC.
Hernandez is one of the most respected voices in indie film, starting indieWIRE in 1996 and building it to become the prominent site that it is today through tireless news and film festival reporting, and most recently bringing on marquee names to blog for the site like Anne Thompson, Todd McCarthy and Leonard Maltin.
FSLC describes Hernandez’s newly created role as overseeing all digital initiatives of the nonprofit, including working “with current staff to hone the organization’s website and digital messaging for Film Society programs. Additionally, Eugene will work to identify and secure digital partnerships for Film Comment and help develop a Film Society digital channel.”
