Senior Sundance Film Festival programmer Trevor Groth is taking John Cooper‘s gig as director of programming for the Sundance Film Festival, effective immediately. The word around the campfire had been that both Cooper and Groth were trying to land the top Sundance job in the wake of Gilmore’s departure, although it always seemed a fait accompli to me that Cooper would be named successor, by virtue of seniority. Groth will hang onto his other job as Artistic Director for the CineVegas Film Festival, which he’s been doing since ’02.
