On Tuesday the 18th of May, NZFC staff, stakeholders and Board members gathered to celebrate the opening of the NZFC’s new offices, and to bid farewell to outgoing CEO Annabelle Sheehan.
NZFC Board Chair, Kerry Prendergast paid tribute to Annabelle’s achievements during her time with the organisation, including successfully steering the NZFC through the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. In addition, Annabelle developed production funding initiative the 125 Fund, to celebrate 125 years of women’s suffrage. Other achievements include the launch of Te Rautaki Māori and the associated He Pounamu Te Reo Māori Feature Film Initiative and 2019’s ground-breaking Power of Inclusion Summit.
Annabelle leaves the NZFC well prepared for future challenges.
