Former Goldcrest and Peace Arch exec assumes role on film fund committee.

Penny Wolf, managing partner of Film Consultancy Partners, is joining the investment committee of film fund Mediabiz Capital.

Wolf joins Arnie Messer of Phoenix Pictures and Patricia Jackson, co-head of Mediabiz Capital and formerly of Future Films and Royal Bank of Scotland, on the committee of the fund which, backed by private investors, a pension fund and debt financing, aims to deploy $100m in film finance over the next two years.

The fund, created in early 2012, is a division of Montreal-based Mediabiz International Group, the integrated film and TV company which provides funding and creative solutions from script stage to post-production, and which also includes production arms Mediamax and Toonz Global.

Wolf previously worked as head of film at Goldcrest International and as managing director and executive vice president of Peace Arch Entertainment.
