Scott Rowitz Out as Director of the Denver Film Society

The Denver Film Society has announced that executive director Scott Rowitz will be taking off for a position at the California Film Institute. Rowitz has held the post since 2002 and has overseen significant growth in general ticket sales as well as increased attendance at the Starz Denver Film Festival, which jumped from 19,500 in 2000 to 45,000 in 2007. Last November, festival founder Ron Henderson stepped down as artistic director of the annual event. A search of a new executive director is in the works. Until then, Starz FilmCenter Development Director Arpie Chucovich will fill in as honcho. –- Jared Jacang Maher
