Alex Sangston has headed up Screen Tasmania since February 2016; luckily enough joining the team just in time for the releases of Lion, The Kettering Incident and Rosehaven, which lasted 5 seasons. Tasmanian screen production is growing significantly in scope, scale and capacity and is now able to host projects such as Netflix’s, The Survivors, Amazon’s Deadloch and Bay of Fires for the ABC.

Before moving back to Tassie (as a born and bred Tasmanian), Alex was at Screen Australia, running the Producer Offset and Co-production Unit from the agency’s inception in July 2008. In that role, Alex was responsible for certifying films for the producer offset and approving projects as Official Co-productions.

Alex has also worked at the Commonwealth Arts Department in Canberra on international screen production policy and programs, and in broadcasting and online content policy.
