Amanda Duthie has resigned from her role as the South Australian Film Corporation’s (Safc) head of production, development, attraction and studios to return to Sydney to pursue new opportunities and to be closer to family.
Duthie moved to Sa in 2012 to take up the role of CEO and artistic director of the Adelaide Film Festival and its investment Fund, and joined the Safc last October.
During her time with the state agency, Duthie worked to launch Centralised, a north-south creative collaboration in conjunction with Screen Nt and established the first screen agency partnership with Audible Australia. She also oversaw investment in Unjoo Moon’s I Am Woman starring Tilda Cobham-Hervey; Matchbox/Dirty Films ABC series Stateless; Porchlight Films/Peter Duncan’s ABC series Fallout and Sbs’s The Hunting, from Closer Productions.
After the departure of former Safc CEO Courtney Gibson, Duthie acted in the role until the appointment of Kate Croser.
