Film London has added four new members to its board of directors, which is chaired by producer David Parfitt.
Former DCMS permanent secretary and DTI head Robin Young, MD of eOne Films International Sally Caplan [pictured], BAFTA chief operating officer Kevin Price and Centre for London chair Liz Meek have now joined the board, which now also oversees the British Film Commission.
Those leaving the board at the end of their tenures are Martin Pilgrim and Nadine Marsh Edwards.
David Parfitt, Chair of Film London said: “I am delighted with these very strong additions to our board. These appointments are part of Film London’s comprehensive strategy to successfully drive the agency forward. Film London is in a fantastic position, having maintained crucial funding streams from the Mayor of London, the BFI, Arts Council England and Skillset in order to continue to deliver inward investment services, talent development opportunities and business growth initiatives for the film industry. It is essential that we have the right expertise and knowledge in place to build on this and I believe the strength of our board puts us in the best possible position to make the most effective use of our resources, support industry needs, while seeing production continuing to deliver for the UK’s economy.”
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission, added: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing board members Martin Pilgrim and Nadine Marsh Edwards for their six years of service. They have been a fantastic asset and I appreciate their commitment and all their hard work. I would also like to welcome our four new members, I believe with they will enhance our existing board and with their combined wealth of experience, we can continue to deliver for not only the production industries in London but support the film industry across the whole of the UK.”
