SCREENWORKS' CEO Lois Randall has been appointed to the NSW Film And Television Industry Advisory Committee.

Minister for the Arts, Troy Grant, announced the appointment of the new Committee as part of the NSW Government's ongoing commitment to the industry.

Ms Randall and Iranian-born Australian filmmaker, Amin Palangi will join Helen Wright (Chair), Darren Dale, Patricia Rothkrans, Sue Murray and Bob Campbell to provide independent expert advice to Government.

The Committee's appointment follows amendments to the Film and Television Office Act 1988 (renamed the Film and Television Industry Act) to advise the Minister on the operation of the NSW film and television industry and other matters prescribed by regulations.

Screen NSW will receive nearly $10 million in 2014-15 to support the development and production of screen projects in NSW, promote screen culture across the State, and market NSW as Australia's premier screen production destination

The first meeting of the Committee is scheduled for Friday, July 25, 2014.
