The International Film Series is run by a small but dedicated staff of movie lovers. Look for us at any show and let us know how we're doing.
Jason Phelps, IFS Program Manager Jason started working with IFS and the Cinema Studies department as a student way back in 2012. Moving his way up from a cashier and archivist, his role here has grown tremendously as he has taken over as IFS Program Manager after Pablo’s retirement in September, 2022. While the IFS will no doubt see some changes with a new person at the helm, the heart of the series will remain intact. Cinema is amazing in that it is both an undeniable reflection of our culture as well as its influence. Jason recognizes this fact and plans to continue to bring the best that cinema has to offer to Boulder.
John Adams, Graphic Design & Layout John Adams does the layout and graphic design for the IFS schedule and print ads. He's a Boulder area painter, digital graphic artist and cartoonist. He submitted the first comic book and video to be seen as part of a Master’s Thesis to the Fine Arts Department (MFA 1974). His hobby is memorizing poetry and he can recite, among other works, Howl. To see what he is up to now, go to originalpureart.com.

Student Employees The IFS employees a handful of dedicated student employees - mostly from the Department of Cinema Studies & Moving Image Arts. These employees are invaluable to our operations and are usually the first faces you see when you come to an IFS show. They also are usually the ones in the booth making the magic happen by projecting great movies on our DCP system or our pair of 35mm projectors.
