HONG KONG — Wayne Borg has been appointed as managing director of Fox Studios Australia.

Borg held the twofour54 post for six years with a remit that at the end included the Abu Dhabi Film Commission, the Abu Dhabi Film Festival and Media Summit, Tropfest Arabia, the training academy and production and broadcast facilities.

The studios include 8 sound stages, post-production facilities and are home to some 60 indie production outfits.
