In June 2017 Ausfilm hosted its annual Partner with Australia program for US screen executives and Australian creative talent based in Los Angeles. We were lucky enough to secure a stellar line up of creatives and executives to take part in two panel sessions.

The first panel Australia in Focus featured US executives who had recently filmed projects in Australia and the second panel Australian Creative Talent focused on Australian creative talent sharing their insights about working in Hollywood and with US partners.

This video features executive vice president of feature production at Twentieth Century Fox, Fred Baron (Alien: Covenant, The MartianIndependence Day, Moulin Rouge!); senior vice president, West Coast production at HBO, Jay Roewe and HBO producer Eugene Kelly (Boardwalk EmpireThe LeftoversWestworld S2); Olive Bridge Entertainment head of film, Jodi Hildebrand (currently producing Sony’s live-action/animation hybrid family film, Peter Rabbit, shot in Australia); and head of feature development at Gran Via Productions, Tom Williams (The Chronicles of NarniaDon’t Be Afraid of the Dark, upcoming Breath and Logan Lucky).
