Meet Our Staff

The BDF staff is small but mighty. Year round management and oversight rest with the Producing Director and Admission Director with support from a talented team of consultants and Bates College staff. Each summer BDF comes to life with help from a team of gifted administrative, technical production and media/video experts. A small army of exceptional interns assist while building knowledge and career connections.
