Longtime independent film marketing executive Liz Manne was appointed executive director of FilmAid International in 2011. She’s now transitioning out of the job to the board of directors as a vice chair. Co-founder of the MTV Exit Foundation Simon Goff will replace Manne. FilmAid, founded by producer Caroline Baron during the Balkan crisis of 1999, uses film to educate and bring hope to refugees and communities in need around the world. Manne said today, “I remain deeply committed to FilmAid’s mission, and am honored the board has invited me to join its ranks and continue with the organization in a meaningful and strategic, if no longer day-to-day role.”
