Whitney Spencer

Whitney Spencer is a story architect and community developer, a southerner, and the Director of Marketing and Distribution at Kartemquin Films.

At Kartemquin, Whitney’s work is multifaceted: she develops and executes a consistent and effective brand message alongside senior leadership to ensure the organization’s mission resonates with its community to bring about change; she cultivates a pipeline of strategic partnerships to further the work of the organization; and she supports filmmakers to ensure that the message of their project can meaningfully access its intended audience.

Whitney supports in the management of campaigns for broadcast, digital, print, and social facets as part of individual film festival and distribution strategy. Understanding a filmmaker’s vision and goals is a top priority for her as she partners with creatives to present their work as part of a compelling campaign and release strategy that connects with diverse audiences.

Whitney’s goal is to support in the development of dynamic stories that create intimate and genuine experiences for filmmakers, participants, and viewers especially BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and disabled makers.

When Whitney’s not working (LOL) she enjoys watching basketball, reading, and binge watching what everyone was talking about two years ago.
