This article reports that Polly Cohen has been named president of Warner Independent Pictures, the post that had been held by Mark Gill, who abruptly departed the Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. specialty film division last week. Cohen was executive VP production at Warner Bros. Pictures. Although she has been working in the studio arena rather than the independent world since joining Warner as a creative executive in 1997, Cohen began her career at production company Jersey Films, where she was involved with such movies as "Gattaca" and "Living Out Loud."
