Tanith Glynn-Maloney has joined Bunya Productions in the third Indigenous producer placement for the production company owned by David Jowsey, Ivan Sen and Greer Simpkin.
Tanith, who produced She Who Must Be Loved, Erica Glynn’s biopic of Freda Glynn which had its international premiere in the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival, will spend a year working across Bunya’s film and TV slate.
The placement is funded by Screen Australia’s Indigenous Screen Business Fund, which aims to help build business capacity within the Indigenous screen production sector.
Her appointment follows Gillian Moody’s placement last year. Gillian went on to produce Black Divaz for SBS.
Mitch Stanley, who produced the documentary Servant or Slave , was also part of the Screen Australia Indigenous Producer Placement program. He has joined the Bunya Talent Hub and is developing and producing a slate of Indigenous-led projects.
Tanith previously worked with the company on Sweet Country and Every King Tide. Her credits include Robbie Hood, a 6 x 10 min comedy series for SBS, and Nulla Nulla , which won best short film at the AACTA Awards in 2015. She has also worked as a development and production manager in Screen Australia’s Indigenous department.
“I’m heaps chuffed to be working with Bunya again,” she says. “They are making the content that I consume and the content I want to create. Across the team there is so much talent and experience and I intend to use this opportunity to grow as a filmmaker and producer.”
Bunya CEO Sophia Zachariou said: “Tanith’s breadth of experience as a producer of factual content as well as a filmmaker in her own right makes her an invaluable addition as we gear up for a bumper year of production.”
