MUNICH -- Independent film festival expert Catherine Buresi is the new deputy director of the Berlin International Film Festival's European Film Market, fest organizers said Monday.

Buresi succeeded Karen Arikian on Sept. 1. Arikirian left the EFM in March to become executive director of the Hamptons International Film Festival.

In the past, Buresi has worked for the Berlinale as a program consultant for the Co-Production Market and at the Marche du Film in Cannes.
