Erin Stam, Ausfilm’s Executive Vice President of International Production

“I’m delighted to be joining the impressive team at Ausfilm. I look forward to building lasting relationships with the members and liaising with clients worldwide to support the ongoing effort to bring projects to Australia.

My career as an independent producer and director has been largely supported by tax incentives, so I’m keenly aware of the myriad benefits a robust incentive framework brings to the screen sector at large.

I look forward to contributing to and growing with the Ausfilm team here in Los Angeles and down under.”
