Hello friends -
I hope 2010 finds you well. Things are already getting geared up around here and everyone is looking forward to the 17th Annual AFF in October.
I am writing to let you know that this will be my last week working with the Austin Film Festival. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working here and that is in no small part due to all of the people I have been able to work with. I can say without hesitation that this job would not be possible without all of your help and support and I thank you all for that.
The good news is that we didn't have to look very far for my replacement. Matt Dy, AFF's Office Manager for the last 2 years, will be taking my place. Matt is incredibly capable and very familiar with the competition and how it runs. He is also a writer himself which makes him well suited for the position. We have had plenty of time to make the hand-off and I know it will be a smooth transition.
Matt's email address is Matt@austinfilmfestival.com. Please feel free to welcome him to the position and introduce yourself.
Thanks again for all of your support. My forwarding address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
I hope to see you all again at the Festival in October.
