BOCCO AT IFC
Indiewire is reporting that Arianna Bocco is moving to IFC. The former acquisitions exec at both Miramax and New Line has, for the last couple of years, been an agent at the Gersh Agency. She’s now been named IFC Entertainment’s New VP of Acquisitions and Production.
From Brian Brooks’s report:
In her newly appointed role, Bocco is charged with “identifying and pursuing finished feature films that support the company’s overall motion picture acquisition strategy of aggressively growing its theatrical release slate with larger, commercial films,” in addition to “new projects that contribute to a diverse new production slate.” Bocco will also spearhead the acquisition of twenty-four films a year for the IFC First Take banner, IFC Entertainment’s day-and-date division.
Bocco has always had great taste and straight-shooting style, so I’ll look forward to seeing what projects she launches at IFC.
