Film veteran Bryce Menzies joins ScreenWest
Executive producer and production legal advisor Bryce Menzies has been appointed to the ScreenWest board.
Announcing Menzies’ appointment today, WA Culture and the Arts Minister John Day said the move came at an important time for the state's production sector.
“It’s an exciting time to join the ScreenWest board, with the Liberal National Government recently announcing the $16 million Western Australian Regional Film Fund which aims to attract significant levels of production from within Australia and internationally,” Mr Day said.
“I welcome Mr Menzies and the wealth of knowledge he will bring to his new ScreenWest role.
“The regional film fund promises to give WA a serious competitive edge, so I expect ScreenWest will be even busier than usual as Mr Menzies takes up his position.”
Menzies has a long history in the industry, as executive producer on films such as Son of a Gun, Red Dog, A Few Best Men and Two Hands.
Menzies has served on the boards of Film Victoria, Screen Tasmania and the South Australian Film Corporation, and provides legal counsel on feature films, shorts, documentaries and television series.
