Tally Shorts Film Festival
Co-Founder, Programming, Art and Marketing Director
Founded in 2011 with the goal of bringing a unique art and cinema experience to Tallahassee, Florida as well as providing an avenue for local filmmakers to network and showcase their work. Tally Shorts has steadily grown over the years to become one of the premiere events of the city. www.tallyshorts.com
Marketing Director:
As marketing director I develop a comprehensive strategy to maximize the visibility of the festival and grow attendance each year. This includes a coordinated social media blitz, contacts with local traditional media, and an abundance of guerilla marketing tactics.
Art Director:
As art director I lead a team of designers in establishing a new look and feel of the festival each year. I ensure that all design needs are met by assigning tasks and coordinating with outside vendors.
Programming Director:
As programming director I developed the criteria for film selection and lead a team of over 15 programmers in watching, reviewing and rating hundreds of films. I also set-up, maintained and coordinated the submission platforms to accept films from all around the world. In this role I was required to find, network and liaise with industry experts to serve as festival judges and determine the winning films.
