Brittany D. Friesner

Indiana University Cinema
Associate Director
Bloomington, Indiana
I am currently serving as interim director of Indiana University Cinema. In my usual role as associate director, I develop film programming, lead IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program, and manage the Cinema’s marketing and engagement efforts, including donor cultivation and stewardship initiatives. I’ve worked in non-profit film organizations since 2005 and in the non-profit field since 1998. In addition to my position at IU Cinema, I have been fortunate to work in programming, marketing, and theater operations for the Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival, Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, and Indy Film Fest. I’ve served on the Heartland International Film Festival’s Narrative Short Film and Documentary Features juries and on the Grand Jury for the Indy Film Fest.

I am passionate about community engagement, strategic planning, collaborative partnerships, equity in programming and infrastructure, color-coding my Outlook calendar, al pastor tacos, and hating celery.
