Julie Goldstein has come aboard HBO Films as senior vp, charged with overseeing the development and production of the HBO Films theatrical release slate.

She will report to HBO Films president Colin Callender, who announced the appointment Friday.

"Julie comes to HBO with an impressive pedigree in the film industry," Callender said. "She is one of the smartest film executives in the industry, highly regarded and well-respected, with an impeccable track record that is a testament to her great working relationship with some of the finest filmmakers in the world."

For the past two years, Goldstein has been an indie producer and consultant.

From 1993-2004, she was an exec at Miramax Films, where she rose to exec vp international production and development and was involved in all phases of film development, production and postproduction as well as co-heading U.K. productions. Before that, she was vp production and development.

She was exec producer on such films as "Proof," "Dirty Pretty Things," "Shall We Dance?" and the best picture Oscar winners "Chicago" and "Shakespeare in Love."
