Today Robert Redford, founder and president of Sundance Institute, and chairman of the board Wally Weisman announced the appointment of Keri Putnam as the Institute’s new executive director. Putnam was most recently president of production for Miramax Films and comes to the Institute with an extensive background in independent film production, acquisition and programming. She is expected to start her new position in April. ‘In the spirit of moving forward with new ideas and a fresh approach in the environment that surrounds us, Keri’s appointment reflects the new direction in which Sundance Institute is headed,’ said Redford.
