Tava Maloy Sofsky serves as director and film commissioner for the Cherokee Nation Film Office. Sofsky left her post as director
of the Oklahoma Film + Music Office in 2022 to join CNFO, which is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Sofsky, a Cherokee Nation citizen, brings more than 23 years of industry-leading experience to her new role supporting
the mission and strategic growth of the Cherokee Nation Film Office. She will also now oversee the Cherokee Film Incentive,
among other initiatives within the tribal film office.
"Tava is among the top film commissioners in the world", said Jennifer Loren, director of Cherokee Nation Film
and Original Content. "The fact that she is a Cherokee Nation citizen who has stood at the forefront of this industry
further demonstrates the true breadth of talent inside Indian Country. We are excited for Tava to join us as we continue to
grow and diversify the film and television industry in Oklahoma".
