Publicity Manager

"Creating a film, a screenplay, a game is such an incredible achievement. I'm proud to help celebrate the work of Cinequest's featured artists, and gain attention for Silicon Valley as not only a hub of technologic innovation but of culture."

Dana leads publicity efforts at Cinequest, to shine a spotlight on the exceptional program of its annual film and VR festival, as well as philanthropic efforts and initiatives.  With a long background in public relations, both in-house at video game giant EA as well as agency side, in her career, Dana has supported some of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world, including Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and James Bond.

An avid film lover herself, Dana is eager to support the incredible work of filmmakers from around the world and Cinequest?s own in-house innovators, and apply her background in technology to continue to grow the attention for Cinequest?'s VR program.

Outside of work, Dana can be found at the Alamo Drafthouse catching up on retro and new run films, searching for the best Tex-Mex in San Francisco and daydreaming about future trips abroad: next stop, Uruguay.
