Ted Hope Intends To Step Down As Head Of San Francisco Film Society By The End Of The Year

The latest news is that Ted Hope is stepping down as the head of the San Francisco Film Society, which is responsible for the San Francisco Film Festival. Hope held the post from September, last year. He took over from Bingham Ray, due to his unfortunate demise. Ted has produced nearly 70 films, including “In the Bedroom and “Martha Marcy May Marlene”.

Hope has expressed his desire to getting back to producing films and becoming an entrepreneur. He has labeled them as “other film-related interests.” He would be managing all activities which are required for the organization until the 31st of December. He would be working with the staff and ensure that a smooth leadership transition is possible.

Hope will be joining the SFFS Advisory Board and would assist the Film Society into a future of an entirely new capacity. The search to replace Ted Hope has already begun. They expect to have a new leader as the organization enters into its 57th year.

“When I came to San Francisco after producing so many films, it surprised some that I wanted to lead a non-profit organization,” said Hope. “Over the past 14 months I’ve come to realize that as much as I fully embrace the mission of the Film Society, my passion is more entrepreneurial. We accomplished a great deal at SFFS over the last year, and the same fantastic team that initially drew me to the Bay Area is still in place to drive the organization well into the future. Vanessa and I plan to stay in the Bay Area and I look forward to staying involved in an advisory role and collaborating with the Film Society in our film-related activities”, said Ted Hope.
