FilmOntario taps Ker-Hornell

Canuck consortium lands new exec director-CEO

Sarah Ker-Hornell has been appointed exec director and CEO of Canada’s FilmOntario, the private consortium that encourages filmmaking in the province. She had been the org’s managing director since 2003; earlier she founded commercial production company Angel Films.

“The Ontario film, interactive and television industry has weathered multiple challenges in the past 10 years, including a rising (Canadian) dollar and attempts by competing jurisdictions to beat Ontario at its own game with competing incentives,” said Brian Topp, co-chair of the FilmOntario board. “Sarah led our work … to meet and overcome these challenges.”

Industry-funded FilmOntario boasts 30,000 members from the private sector, the production community, unions and guilds, financial services and other orgs in Ontario.
