Tabitha Jackson, the arts commissioner at UK’s Channel 4 will soon head for the Sundance Institute in the U.S., to become the new director of the Institute’s Documentary Film Program and Fund.

She will start her new position at the beginning of the year, replacing the former director Cara Mertes, who left this past May to become the director of the JustFilms initiative at the Ford Foundation.

In an official statement, Ralph Lee, the head of Specialist Factual programming at Channel 4, said: that “Tabitha has made the arts on Channel 4 truly distinctive… and also made a real mark in documentaries. We’ll miss her unique output and her presence as a colleague, but we wish all the best at Sundance.
