We here at Washington Filmworks were excited to hear that Sarah Wilke has been hired as the new Executive Director at the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF)!

Formerly Managing Director of Seattle’s On the Boards, Wilke comes to SIFF after a year long search by their Board of Directors. She’s also held positions at Consolidated Works in Seattle, the Tacoma Art Museum, and at the Freer & Sackler Galleries in Washington, D.C.

We’re looking forward to seeing Wilke bring the same drive, creativity and forward-thinking that she brought to the arts and performance organization On The Boards while she was there.
