Posted October 28, 2019

Pleasantville, NY – October 25, 2019 — The Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC), a nonprofit cultural arts center, announced today Edie Demas is stepping down as Executive Director.

“After careful consideration with board leadership, I have made the difficult decision to leave the JBFC so that I may assume oversight and management of my father’s and now my family’s business in the Washington, DC metro area. While this does not require a move, it does require me to have a regular presence in DC,” said Edie Demas. “It has been my privilege to spend the last five and a half years at the JBFC, working alongside an unparalleled team and sharing meaningful moments with a very special community. I look forward to all of the innovation, creativity, and really great storytelling that is to come.”
