CineVegas names new managing director

Anita NelvingThe CineVegas Film Festival lost one of its most visible figures over the last few years when Managing Director Ian Jankelowitz departed Las Vegas to pursue his MBA at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. But have no fear, fans of the world’s most dangerous film festival – a new managing director has been found, and she’s a gem!

Anita Nelving will be overseeing all festival departments for the annual CineVegas Film Festival along with the year-round events presented by CineVegas. Nelving’s job will also entail some boring stuff such as budgets, networking and branding. Currently the director of public relations for Cirque Du Soleil Resident Shows in Las Vegas, Nelving will join CineVegas officially on Sept. 2, but will still make sure Criss Angel’s new Cirque show, Believe, gets off the ground.

“We are thrilled to have someone with Anita’s experience join the CineVegas team,” said CineVegas Artistic Director Trevor Groth. “Her many years with Cirque du Soleil have made her an invaluable asset not just to the city of Las Vegas, but internationally, as she has helped spread the importance of art and culture around the world.”
