Germanidi will be in charge of preparing and day-to-day running of the festival, which will run Jan. 23-29, 2015, in Park City — parallel to the bigger Sundance Film Festival.

Peter Baxter, Slamdance’s president and co-founder, will continue to oversee the Slamdance organization, including development of its Slamdance Studios distribution business.

In a statement, Germandini said, "as we’re starting the next 20 years, we’re excited to welcome new talent into our creative family and together help independent cinema grow stronger."

"To have such a passionate leader who already knows Slamdance and has helped our community grow is invaluable for us as we move forward with our 21st festival," Baxter said in a statement.
