TIFF announced the election of two members to the TIFF Board of Directors: Shabin Mohamed and Helen Burstyn.

“We are pleased to welcome two enthusiastic and professional individuals to our Board of Directors,” said Paul Atkinson, Chair, Board of Directors, TIFF. “Both Shabin and Helen bring a unique and diverse perspective that will be an asset to our Board as we continue to grow the organization as a fully integrated, year-round cultural institution, dedicated to excellence in film.”

With these new appointments comes the retirement of five Board members. Stepping down from the Board are Barry Avrich, Jan Innes, Allen Karp, Leslie Noble and Connie Wansbrough. The TIFF Board of Directors recently changed its bylaws to reduce its size from 24 to 21 members.

In addition, the Board elected Lisa de Wilde to the role of  Vice Chair, a newly-created position on the Board of Directors.
