BAY AREA REPORTER -- Sloan, a filmmaker with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Cinema from San Francisco State University, came to the Roxie three and a half years ago after stints with Frameline, the LGBT film festival, and the San Francisco Green Film Festival.

“The Roxie has a long history of supporting the LGBT community with a wide rage of programming, as well as hosting both the Frameline Film Festival and the Transgender Film Festival from their inception,” Sloan said in an interview at the Roxie earlier this month. “As we move forward, we are committed to this tradition.”

“We are thrilled to have Lex Sloan’s steadfast commitment to the Roxie leading us toward continued success in the years to come,” said board President Diana Fuller. “Her passion for creating programs that serve our diverse community of local filmmakers and film audiences is essential to the Bay Area.”
