The Denver Post's Lisa Kennedy is set to report in Sunday's paper that the board of the Denver Film Society has removed Bo Smith from the Executive Director position after months of turmoil that culminated in more than 21 resignations earlier this week.
Britta Erickson, who had been Director of Festivals for DFS prior to Smith's arrival, will be named Interim ED, according to the Post report. She, along with Programming Director Brit Withey and festival co-founder Ron Henderson, had resigned as part of a mutiny against Smith's leadership. All 3 are set to return to the organization.
Sources in Denver (see my previous article on this topic for lengthy full disclosure) indicated that the Board was surprised both by the solidarity in resignations and by the national outcry and coverage that kicked off with indieWIRE's Brian Brooks breaking the story on Tuesday.
