BFC names new Stateside VP

Kotok to lure o'seas productions to U.K.

LONDON — The British Film Commission, which is responsible for encouraging and supporting international film production in Blighty, has appointed Kattie Kotok as its new exec VP of U.S. production.

Kotok, former VP of acquisitions and productions at National Geographic Films, will be based in Los Angeles and will begin her new job on Monday.

She takes over from Andy Weltman, who left BFC in March to head Pinewood’s L.A. office.

At Nat Geo, Kotok led on all acquisitions and was instrumental in buying, editing and distributing high-profile titles including “March of the Penguins.”

Previously, she worked in film development at Fox Searchlight Pictures and in marketing at Paramount Pictures.

“Heading up the BFC’s operations in L.A., Kattie will be central to building on the excellent levels of international productions coming into the U.K. and ensuring the U.S. film industry continues to utilize the U.K.’s world-class production infrastructure and talent base,” said BFC and Film London chief exec Adrian Wootton.

“Kattie’s role is vital and I look forward to her working with me and the BFC team to sustain and develop inward investment.”
