IFD Australia’s head of acquisitions and development will leave the company after three years.
Susan Boehm, the head of acquisitions and development at Icon Film Distribution Australia, is leaving the company after three years.
Boehm plans to focus on new opportunities in Australia and the US and will be taking meetings at Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 10-20).
During her three-year tenure, Icon acquired the Oscar-winning Still Alice and Love & Mercy, as well as Toronto galas The Man Who Knew Infinity and Mr. Right, and upcoming titles Alone In Berlin, War On Everyone and The Wife.
She had previously held the position of development executive at Screen Australia where she developed festival hit The Rocket, Looking For Grace and Last Cab To Darwin.
She later acquired Last Cab To Darwin for Icon and the film will screen at Toronto next month.
“Susan has made a significant contribution to Icon’s acquisitions and development capabilities over the past three years and has cemented her reputation as a highly credentialed and accomplished practitioner with a keen eye for superlative material,” said Icon CEO Greg Hughes.
