SCREEN AUSTRALIA boss
New Zealand Film Commission CEO Ruth Harley has been handed the reins of Australia's fledgling national film superagency, Screen Australia. Harley will steer the new body — formed last month by the merger of the Film Finance Corp., the Australian Film Commission and documentary agency Film Australia — for a five-year term beginning Nov. 15, Australian arts minister Peter Garrett said. Garrett said Harley, who will oversee a staff of more than 150, was chosen for "her experience and commitment to the development of a successful and sustainable local film industry."
