Wayne Carter was executive director of the FIN Atlantic International Film Fest from 2012 to 2022.
Every September, the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival takes over big screens at Cineplex Park Lane—and once upon a (recent) time, at the dearly departed Oxford Theatre—showing a mix of new local films, Oscar bait and buzzy international offerings. It's a popcorn-fuelled paradise for movie lovers—and now, with longtime festival executive director Wayne Carter stepping down, it's hiring. Carter took over the festival in 2012, after working as vice president at Warner Home Video and gaining a foothold in the industry in Toronto for a decade. He's officially parting ways with FIN on March 31—but  film fanatics can shoot their shot to lead the biggest film festival east of Montreal now, as the job listing has already been made live (though no salary is stated in the description). 

For the rest of us, FIN 2022 will take place from September 15-22.
