New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) CEO Annabelle Sheehan is set to depart her role and return to Australia after three years at the helm of the organisation.
The NZFC announced Sheehan’s resignation today, citing her desire to focus on her family while she completes her treatment for breast cancer, which she has been undergoing for the past six months. She will make a full recovery.
NZFC chair Dame Kerry Prendergast said the board was “saddened” by her resignation and the reasons for it, commending Sheehan for continuing to lead the development and implementation of new programs and initiatives, including the New Zealand Government’s COVID-19 recovery funds.
