Kino Lorber announced that Nicholas Kemp is joining the company as Director of Theatrical Marketing, after a five-year run as the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Digital Marketing Manager, and will report to the company's Senior VP Theatrical/Nontheatrical Distribution & Acquisitions Wendy Lidell.
 
Nicholas Kemp has spent the past five years building the digital presence of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, where he's overseen cross-channel content and digital marketing for the New York Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, and year-round programming. He has pioneered Film Society's video initiatives, mining the institutions' existing archives and creating new content, while serving as co-producer of its weekly podcast, The Close-Up.
 
Nicholas has shaped the organization's voice online and grown followers across social media channels and other digital platforms, besides bringing new, data-driven digital marketing strategies to the organization. Previously, Nicholas worked on web content and audience engagement campaigns for film and other media projects, including independent film website Hammer to Nail, where he helped launch their Short Film Contest.
 
Wendy Lidell said: "All of us at Kino Lorber look forward to working with Nicholas. He is clearly a marketing executive with multiple talents, and we are delighted to give him an opportunity to bring the skills he honed, cultivating audiences in New York, at one of the city's great art institutions, to bear on cultivating film audiences nationwide. We welcome him to our team."
