Seph McKenna Appointed as CEO at Australia’s Screenwest

Regional Australian funding body, Screenwest has appointed Seph McKenna as its new CEO. He will take over from Ian Booth in December.

McKenna is the current head of Australian production at Roadshow Films. He previously held positions at Village Roadshow and Warner Bros., in Australia and the U.S.

“Seph’s appointment marks an exciting time in Screenwest’s journey and will further strengthen a great Screenwest team to realize the vision of bringing world-class Western Australian stories and identity to screen, for the benefit of the community,” said Screenwest chair Janelle Marr. “With our new structure and board fully operational, Screenwest is in a very strong and settled position.”

The appointment is the first since Screenwest shifted from being a government-controlled body to a corporate body. The reform increases the opportunities Screenwest can provide the Western Australian screen industry as well as enable strategic partnerships with the business community, Federal departments, not-for-profit and philanthropic organizations.
