Frederic Boyer replaces Olivier Pere at Directors' Fortnight which is run by Societe des Realisateurs de Films (SRF). Olivier Pere is leaving to head up the Locarno Film Festival where as announced last September he will replace Frederic Maire on September 1, 2009. Pere began at the Fortnight in 2004 after two artistic directors, Francois Da Silva and Marie-Pierre Macia, left within a year of one another. Boyer who has been a member of the selection committee of the Fortnight since Pere’s arrival in 2004 will begin his new job in November to prepare the 2010 edition.
