Lindsay Crain has been promoted to vice president of acquisitions at Picturehouse.

Crain will continue to report to senior vice president of acquisitions Sara Rose and will work closely with her and president Bob Berney on all acquisitions and developments.

'Lindsay has been an instrumental part of our team for close to two years now,' Berney said. 'We are really pleased that we are able to recognise all her hard work and give her this opportunity to really shine and get front and centre on several projects.'

Crain joined Picturehouse in 2006 as director of acquisitions, and was involved with the deals on Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, Robert Altman's A Prairie Home Companion, and Leon Ichaso's El Cantante.

She previously served as director of acquisitions at United Artists where she was involved with Capote, Hotel Rwanda, Jeepers Creepers 2 and Bowling For Columbine, among others.

Prior to United Artists Crain was acquisitions coordinator at Fine Line Features. She began her career as an assistant to Nancy Meyers and Charles Shyer at the Meyers/Shyer Company.
