Kylie Munnich, currently the CEO of Screen Queensland, will soon take on a new role with Goalpost Pictures.
In July, Munnich announced she would be leaving Screen Queensland at the end of her three-year term in October.
Now, her next move has been revealed, with Goalpost Pictures announcing she will take on the newly-created CEO role from Nov. 1.
Goalpost Pictures is an independent producer of feature films and TV drama, and is currently in post-production for “Black Snow”, a television series for Stan and Sundance Now. The company is also working on Amazon Original movie “Five Blind Dates” for Prime Video Australia, and feature film “Carmen”, a co-production with France’s Chapter 2, which recently had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The company noted that Munnich had clocked up 30 years of working in film and TV distribution, development and financing, with experience in the U.S., U.K. and Australia. Her time at Screen Queensland saw her lead the organisation through its biggest period of growth, and the largest production spike in the state’s history, against the backdrop of the pandemic, it said.
“With her incredible business acumen and international and Australian experience at the highest level in scripted content and production, Kylie will make a powerful addition to the Goalpost team,” partners Rosemary Blight, Kylie du Fresne and Ben Grant, said.
“We are thrilled she is joining the company at a time when we are experiencing strong growth and when opportunities for quality content to be seen around the world have never been greater.”
Munnich said she is excited to be joining Goalpost at a pivotal point in its history.
“They deservedly have a stellar reputation in Australia and internationally. The partners at Goalpost have demonstrated the power of storytelling through exceptional feature films and TV drama. And I look forward to helping to elevate the company even further,” she said.
In May, Goalpost Pictures announced Polly Rowe would be joining as a development producer.
