Golden girl for Intermedia

Promotions prepare Hollywood prod'n arm

As part of a larger ramping-up of its Hollywood production arm, London-based Intermedia Films has tapped Julie Golden as senior VP of production, effective immediately.

Intermedia also announced internal promotions, concurrently making Katherine Goodman prexy of West Coast operations and Karen Belanger VP of creative affairs.

“We view this as the natural evolution of our U.S. beachhead and the company as a whole,” said Intermedia co-chairman Nigel Sinclair. “Julie’s sensibilities, energy and experience in bringing projects to the screen will be an invaluable catalyst in our growth, as will be Kathy and Karen in their enhanced roles.”

Golden comes from a stint as senior VP at Universal-based startup shingle Larger Than Life for Gary Ross and Jane Sindell. She also made VP during a prior four-year hitch at Lakeshore Entertainment, shepherding projects like “Arlington Road” and “Till There Was You,” which she also co-produced.

Goodman previously has handled all of Intermedia’s contractual matters as senior VP of business affairs, while Belanger has operated as director of creative affairs.

Under the aegis of co-chairmen Sinclair and Guy East, Intermedia has been busy developing, financing and distributing such pictures as “Hilary and Jackie” and “Sliding Doors.”

Upcoming pics on the slate are “Where the Heart Is,” directed by Matt Williams and the Kenneth Branagh-helmed 1930s tuner adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost.”
