Madman Entertainment's theatrical distribution manager, James Hewison, has left the company after a three-year stint with the distributor.
The company said his departure was prompted by an internal review which recommended a unified management structure across the theatrical, home entertainment, digital, and television distribution channels. The change is aimed at improving communication and the release planning of film and television content.
The theatrical sales and marketing teams will now be reporting directly to Madman's general manager Darrien Puddy.
Hewison worked on many local and international films including Animal Kingdom, Wake In Fright, In The Loop, The September Issue and most recently Sarah’s Key.
"James is a well-known and charismatic figure amongst the Australian film community and Madman sincerely thanks him for his contributions," the company said in a statement.
