Changes to FFC Board The Board of the Australian Film Finance Corporation (FFC) will undergo some exciting changes with the appointment of a new Deputy Chair, the reappointment of one Director and the new appointment of another.

Mr Roger Amos was appointed to the Board in April last year and will become its Deputy Chair. Ms Lynda House has been reappointed to the Board, while Robyn Kershaw will join the Board for the first time.

'Mr Amos' financial expertise and knowledge of the communications and entertainment industries continues to be of strategic importance to the FFC,' Federal Minister for the Arts, Peter McGauran, said.

'I'm delighted that Ms House has agreed to another term, and that fellow producer Ms Kershaw will take up her first term,' he said.

Mr Amos has been a partner with KPMG since 1981, and is currently the Partner in Charge of KPMG Services Division of Assurance and Advisory. He is Chair of KPMG Australia's Information, Communications and Entertainment (ICE) Group and represents the Australian firm on KPMG's International ICE.

Ms House has produced or co-produced some of Australia's most exciting films including Death in Brunswick, Proof and Muriel's Wedding. She was also a Production Manager on Celia, Dogs in Space and Malcolm. She is currently a partner of House and Moorhouse Films Pty Ltd. She has been a board member of Film Victoria and a member of the Cinemedia Evaluation Committee.

Ms Kershaw has been General Manager of the Belvoir Street Theatre and a Director for Company B at Belvoir and Glen St Theatre. In 1997, along with Tristram Miall, she created Miall and Kershaw Productions, and formed a joint venture with Beyond International to develop feature films. Her producing debut feature film, Looking for Alibrandi, opened to audience and critical

acclaim earlier this year.

The FFC is the Commonwealth's principal production investment agency for the Australian film industry. It works in close collaboration with the marketplace, strengthening the commercial film-making sector by achieving sustainable production levels in the industry.
