Hughes tops Oz pic fund

SYDNEY — Catriona Hughes was tapped chief exec of premier film and TV finance fund the Australian Film Finance Corp. (FFC) late Wednesday.

Formerly the FFC’s senior investment manager, Hughes, a lawyer, has been with the FFC since its inception in 1988. She beat a wide field of candidates, including Bruce Moir, managing director of embattled government documentary producer Film Australia; Judith McCann, chief exec of the South Australian Film Corp.; and former New South Wales Film and TV Office director Greg Smith.

Hughes’ FFC posting means that all but three of Oz’s 10 film and TV financiers are controlled by women, including Cathy Robinson (Australian Film Commission), Ruth Jones (Australian Film Institute), Jenifer Hooks (Victoria’s Cinemedia), Debra Allanson (ScreenWest) and Jane Smith (New South Wales Film and TV Office).
