Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah Varghese and I am honored to be joining the IFP team as your new Program Director.
IFP Phoenix has been a part of my life for many years now. I love competing in the film challenges and the opportunity to improve my skills in a friendly and supportive environment. I also really enjoy the educational events and speakers IFP brings to the film community. Most of all, I appreciate the connections and friends I have made. I’m sad to see Aaron go, but I’m excited to try to fill his shoes the best that I can.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a filmmaker, producer and theatrical artist who has been working professionally in the Valley for over 10 years. I have held a variety of positions including producer, director, cinematographer, writer, editor, actor, production designer, prop builder, costume designer, practical effects creator, and more. I currently run my own film production company, Ghese Productions, and deal in both the creative and practical sides of keeping it afloat.
I believe Phoenix is a fantastic place to create film and I’m incredibly excited to see it thrive. I’m working with Jason and the rest of the IFP team to bring back some old events and possibly introduce some new ones, so keep an eye out for those announcements soon.
If you’d like to say hello or if you have any questions for me, feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org or introduce yourself at the next IFP event. I can’t wait to meet you all!
