The Board of Screen Queensland has appointed Tracey Vieira as its new CEO, who will return home from Los Angeles where she has worked for the past nine years with Ausfilm.

Vieira has previously worked for Screen Queensland under its former name of the Pacific Film and Television Commission and has most recently worked as executive vice president – international production for Ausfilm in the US.

She said in a statement: “Queensland has a young and vibrant screen industry which is innovative and commercial, and which has seen the state produce highly successful, internationally recognised productions across all areas of screen practice – film, television, digital, multi-platform and games.

“I very much look forward to returning to my home state and working with Screen Queensland’s local and international partners to showcase Queensland’s diverse talent and provide the support and frameworks needed to ensure this talent can continue to grow and prosper.”

Vieira will begin in the role from February 17.

Screen Queensland Chairman, Professor Peter Little said in a statement: “This is a time of opportunity and innovation for Screen Queensland as we implement our three year strategy to grow a dynamic and sustainable screen industry throughout the state.

“Tracey brings a new enthusiasm and international perspective to lead the renewal of Screen Queensland and ensure it continues to support our local talent, attract international productions and provide the best range of opportunities for Queensland’s screen professionals and graduates.”

Little said Vieira has played a strong role in supporting the local screen industry, significantly contributing to a number of notable achievements, including playing a key role in bringing high profile productions to Australia, including Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken.

“The Board was extremely impressed with Tracey’s highly relevant experience, her strong understanding of both the local and international screen industries and her ability to deliver results, which include playing an integral role in attracting over half a billion dollars in production investment to Australia during her time at Ausfilm,” he said in a statement.
