The two heads of the indie film and TV trade association will remain at the helm for another three years.

Jean Prewitt and Jonathan Wolf, who head the Independent Film & Televison Alliance, have been given contract renewals through 2018, the organization, which serves as the global trade association for indie film and TV, announced Monday.

Prewitt has served as IFTA’s president and CEO since 2000, speaking out on issues like market access, copyright protection and net neutrality.

Wolf, IFTA’s executive vp and its American Film Market managing director, has been with the organization since 1998.

The pair’s steadfast commitment to the cause, visionary leadership, and insightful knowledge of the entertainment landscape has put IFTA and AFM at the forefront of our industry, and ensures that the interests of the global Independents are championed to great effect,” IFTA chairman Paul Hertzberg said in a statement.
