Farewell Annabelle Sheehan

RNZ's Simon Morris talks to Annabelle Sheehan about her three years at the helm of Te Tuma Whakaata Taonga New Zealand Film Commission.

She lead the NZFC through a year of global pandemic, but, as Morris notes, that same year was also one of the most successful 12 months our film industry has had in years - from the Oscar-winning Jojo Rabbit to box office hits Savage, Six60, Baby Done and Cousins. 

Annabelle, who has resigned from her role as CEO, has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer over the past six months, and has decided to return home to Australia, complete her treatment there, and focus on her family.
