12 October 2017
The South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) today announced that CEO Annabelle Sheehan will be departing the SAFC at the end of the year to take up the role of Chief Executive of the New Zealand Film Commission.
Premier of South Australia and Minister for the Arts Jay Weatherill said “Annabelle is highly regarded internationally, and through her connections and reputation played a pivotal role in securing the re-make of Storm Boy and the NETFLIX Original series Pine Gap. I wish her all the best in the next stage of her career – New Zealand has secured a talented CE for their Film Commission.”
“The Board congratulates Annabelle on her new appointment and recognises the significant contribution made to the South Australian screen industry. The State has been very lucky to have had Annabelle at the helm of the SAFC where she has put in place a series of programs and initiatives that will continue to see our local industry grow and ensure international recognition of South Australian stories and of South Australia as a major production base,” said John Hill, Chair of the SAFC.
