Sheehan to return to Australia

We'd like to acknowledge the news that New Zealand Film Commission CEO Annabelle Sheehan is stepping away from the role, after three years leading the agency, and returning to Australia.

Annabelle has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer over the past six months and has decided to return to home and complete her treatment there, and focus on her family. 

Annabelle has always been a strong supporter of women in the film industry, and of WIFT. We wish her the very best and wait with interest to see what her next role will be.
