Keane keen on new IFI role
The Irish Film Institute has appointed Ross Keane as its new director. Currently the organisation’s public affairs and marketing director, Ross replaces Sarah Glennie, who is leaving the IFI to become director of the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
“I am delighted to be taking on the role of Director of the IFI,” said Keane, “and to be given this fantastic opportunity to lead such a dynamic organisation into its next exciting phase. With a strong and dedicated team behind me, I am looking forwarding to embarking on this role, developing relationships with partners in film culture, education and archive, and applying my own creative vision to one of Ireland’s most popular and relevant arts organisations.”
Keane takes over the reins on April 16th.
