Sundance Selects/IFC Films has just appointed three new executives to head their marketing and publicity departments for the company's distribution labels.

Lauren Schwartz will lead publicity and Shani Ankori -- who have been at the company since 2011 and 2007, respectively -- will serve as head of marketing at Sundance Selects and IFC Films, effectively replacing outgoing IFC vet Ryan Werner.

In addition, Michael Winton -- at Sundance Selects/IFC since 2008 -- is the new head of marketing and publicity for IFC Midnight, the sister label that recently released "Antiviral" and "Room 237," as well as the upcoming horror remake "Maniac." All the distribution labels are owned by AMC.
