Angaelica (an-gālik-ah)

Breven Warren

Breven Angaelica Warren passionately believes in the power of the independent filmmakers, storytellers and artists. She founded Angaelica to be deeply rooted in art and ecology. She has over 13 years of experience working at prestigious nonprofit organizations including Sundance Institute, Film Independent, AFI and Outfest. She has also built film mentorship programs and urban farming initiatives. With undergraduate degrees from Florida State University (while living in Italy), she completed programs with Boston University in England, India, the Philippines, New Zealand and Mexico. Breven went back to graduate school to research the efficacy and sustainability of nontraditional filmmaker support programs at the University of Florida. After graduation Breven was invited to develop the artist support programs at an entertainment studio built on the blockchain. Currently completing an MBA and JM program at Florida State University, she is beginning her doctoral research at the University of Southern California to actively build out the long-term vision of Angaelica to be a part of the change she hopes to see in the art and entertainment landscapes. Breven also serves on film programming teams and juries throughout the year.

Tim Udall

Tim Udall partnered with Breven in life and work in 2013. Tim originally studied at University of Colorado Boulder before working professionally as a chef in Los Angeles for Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. He returned to school to study audio engineering at the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Tempe, Arizona, leading to several years of work at Capital Studios and Mastering. When they met, Breven introduced him to the film festival industry where he quickly ascended to leadership positions including Technical Director, Operations Manager and Producer of such renowned festivals as Slamdance, AFI FEST, and The TCM Classic Film Festival. Concurrent with festival work, Tim returned to university, earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering with honors from California State University, Northridge. He continued with a Master’s in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Southern California. He currently works as an industrial systems engineer while continuing to oversee all executive operations of Angaelica, contributing to the larger vision and strategic planning. Tim and Breven also have three amazing boys: Ranen Navat, 5 years old, and Daven Saraf, 3 years old, and Tevah Magan, nearly 1 year old. Together they hope to build a legacy of supporting creatives in a meaningful and sustainable way.
