It’s time to pass the reels! We’re looking for a new executive director!

In 2022 Upstate Films will celebrate its 50th anniversary.  After nearly five decades of running Upstate, its co-founders and Executive Directors, Steve Leiber and DeDe Leiber, will soon be retiring. Upstate is now seeking a new Executive Director to whom they can “pass the reels” (actually, Upstate went digital in 2013).

The Executive Director is responsible for programming Upstate’s theaters in Rhinebeck and Woodstock, fundraising, grant writing, arranging guest speaker events, and organizing special programs, as well as helping to lead the organization’s staff.  The Executive Director should be committed to maintaining the hands-on presence our audiences value and to Upstate’s mission of presenting the best in international and independent cinema.  Please check out the full job listing on Art House Convergence.

Please support our business sponsors.
