Meegan Huff has been named executive director of the Ojai-Ventura International Film Festival, which runs from Nov. 5-8 in Ojai and Ventura.

She will oversee all aspects of the fest, working with artistic director Steve Grumette and chairman David Shor.

The fest, previously known as the Ojai Film Festival, is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and expanding to encompass Ventura as well as Ojai.

Huff recently served as community outreach director for the Pinnacle Development Group, coordinating building projects in California and Texas. She has also worked on several city council campaigns and been a production coordinator for CBS Productions and World Race Productions.

“She brings a strong creative energy to the team -- not to mention enormous professional experience in diverse industries that benefit the festival. We are confident that Meegan will move our vision forward and will take us to the next step in our evolution as we enter our next chapter as a lifestyle-driven destination festival,” Shor said.
