Australia-based distributor Flame has brought in Chris Oliver to boost its Asian sales, production and coproduction efforts.
Oliver is best-known as the head of state and industry partnerships at Australian funding body Screen Australia, facilitating Australian prodco’s efforts to work with partners throughout Asia.
His work at Flame will kick off at the Asian Side of Doc market and conference, which takes place this month.
“Flame has been working in Asia for several years and we’ve developed great working relationships with buyers across the region,” said Flame managing director, John Caldon. “Having Chris on board will strengthen those relationships and help further develop our business in the region.”
Chris Oliver added: “I’m delighted to be working with Flame to help add to its already significant involvement in Asia and looking forward to attending the upcoming Asian Side of the Doc.”
