Croser, a member of the SAFC board and previously head of production and development at Adelaide-based KOJO Entertainment, has produced and co-produced productions nationally and internationally, including films such Boys in the Trees, My Tehran for Sale and The Infinite Man and the TV series Danger 5.

“Kate meets all of the qualities needed to help elevate the screen industry in South Australia to the next level,” chair of the SAFC Peter Hanlon said, adding that her “engaging style and broader experience will serve us well as we build on our recent successes”.

Gibson resigned last month just 15 months into her three-year term, saying that she had relished the work at the SAFC and Adelaide Studios but the time was right for her to return to her family in Sydney.

Amanda Duthie, SAFC head of production, development, attraction and studios, and former chief of the Adelaide Film Festival, has been acting as interim CEO.

Croser will begin her three-year contract early next month.

“Having produced numerous film and television projects and run several production companies in South Australia, I am deeply plugged into the fantastic wealth of talent, businesses, crews, and advantages within the South Australian screen industry,” she said.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the team at the South Australian Film Corporation to leverage off a strong base of production and stimulate the expansion of the whole sector.”
