DIAGONALE Management 2009

Dear friends of the DIAGONALE,

We are pleased to be able to announce the forthcoming director of the DIAGONALE 2009:
The board has unanimously named curator and publicist, Barbara Pichler, as the future director of the DIAGONALE. After the 2008 Festival, Barbara Pichler will immediately succeed current director Birgit Flos and be responsible for the DIAGONALE 2009. Her three year contract will cover the Festivals from 2009 to 2011.
The unanimous decision by the board was based on the clear and precise concept presented by the future director: Barbara Pichler aims to strengthen the DIAGONALE as a festival event for both industry and the public. She regards the filmic and cultural-political significance as a primal function of the DIAGONALE and will appoint herself the task of an ‘internationalisation’ of the guest structure. In commencing her role at the DIAGONALE, Barbara Pichler will conclude her role in the selection committee at the renowned German language documentary festival, the Duisburg Film Week.
