UK Screen, the trade body that represents UK service companies to the film and television screen industries, has announced its Board of Directors for 2007/2008.
The Board is made up of senior executives from across the service industry who give their time and expertise to the organisation on a voluntary, unpaid basis.

  • Mark Foligno, Molinare

"I would like to welcome all the new appointees to the Board and look forward to working with them over the coming year as we tackle the issues and opportunities ahead."
As previously announced, Mike Luckwell continues in the role of Chairman and Gaynor Davenport remains as CEO. Seven Directors drawn by ballot also remain in situ: Colin Brown (UK Film Council), Neil Hatton (Frontier Post), Patrick Holzen (Pepper Post), Mike Kelt (Artem), Anita Nandwani (Films at 59), Steve Norris (Framestore CFC) and Dennis Weinreich (Videosonics).
The new Board will have the right to co-opt further Directors to meet any shortfall in representation.
