professional life. After over a decade as president and 14 New York Film Festivals come
September, I am proud of how the organization has transformed and what we have
accomplished. I’m leaving with a passionate and committed team in place,” Klainberg said in a statement. “The recent New York Film Festivals have seen record-breaking attendance and year-round enthusiastic audiences of all ages enjoy the diverse range of FLC’s programming. This
demonstrates the enduring power of film to bring people together and inspire. Now is a great
time to make this change and allow new leadership to make an impact.”

to promoting a vibrant film community has successfully guided FLC towards the robust and
active year-round organization it is today. She navigated the difficult COVID shutdown with
determination and creativity and is leaving a strong team that positions FLC for future growth
and success. On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Lesli for her leadership and dedication. We
wish her continued success in the next phase of her career and life.”
