Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) has appointed Monika Navarro as senior director of programs.
In her new role, Navarro will oversee all of TFI’s documentary, scripted, education and interactive programming initiatives.
Navarro comes to TFI from doc funder-distributor ITVS, where she oversaw multiple content and funding initiatives, was at the helm of a development portfolio and acted as consulting producer on a variety of projects including Las Sandinistas, which premiered at South by Southwest 2018; and America Reframed’s Councilwoman, among others.
Navarro has previously directed the documentary film Lost Souls, which bowed on PBS’ long-standing ‘Independent Lens’ strand, and has also produced content for World Channel, American Documentary, and the Peabody Award-winning PBS series Latino Americans.
The executive is a member of the Brown Girls Doc Mafia, National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP), and is an advisory board member for Firelight Media.
“Monika exemplifies a new strategic direction for the Institute and will help us grow and strengthen our programs with greater intention and collaboration,” said TFI executive director Amy Hobby in a statement. “We are confident in her expertise and her ability to lead our strong program team, as we raise the bar in outreach and impact.”
