The Independent Film & Television Alliance has renewed the contracts of CEO and president Jean Prewitt and executive VP and American Film Market managing director Jonathan Wolf through 2018, IFTA announced Monday.

Prewitt has headed the global trade organization since 2000. Under her leadership, IFTA has established itself as a leading public advocate for the worldwide independent film and television industry, and a prominent voice internationally in addressing key issues including market access, copyright protection and enforcement, and net neutrality.

Since 1998, Wolf has guided the repositioning of the AFM from an export event into a global production and distribution marketplace and conference, growing attendance substantially. Wolf_Jonathan_IFTA Headshot
