Lotterywest Festival Film program manager announced

The Perth International Arts Festival is delighted to announce the appointment of Madeline Bates to the highly sought-after role of Program Manager: Film. Our current program manager, Sherry Hopkins, will bow out next year after more than 40 years with the Festival.

Madeline comes to the Festival from the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where she is currently head of screenings for the 2010 festival. Her career in film has included a variety of roles in the industry. She has developed ideas with documentary filmmakers before helping them to secure project funding and was marketplace coordinator on the Sheffield International Documentary Festival. Madeline is looking forward to bringing her experience in this field to the multi-disciplinary arts context of the Perth Festival.

Madeline’s impressive qualifications also include a Master’s degree in Visual Anthropology from Oxford University as well as a Master of Arts from the University of Edinburgh.

Madeline will join the Perth Festival team in August and will work alongside Sherry to program the 2011 Lotterywest Festival Films.
