Munnich will take up the position November 1 after her recently announced departure from the Australian funding body, which she has led for the past three years.

The exec has 30 years’ experience in film and TV distribution, development and financing, having worked for a number of major US studios as well as Australia- and UK-based indies.

In October 2019, Munnich became CEO of Screen Queensland, leading the organisation through its biggest period of growth. At the screen agency, she oversaw the biggest production spike in the state’s history, against the backdrop of the pandemic.

Prior to Screen Queensland, Munnich worked as a scripted sales and coproduction executive for Seven Studios in Australia. Before that, she was senior VP for distribution in Asia Pacific for Sonar Entertainment.

Munnich returned to Australia in late 2016, after five years in London, to take the Sonar role. Her most recent job in the UK was as director of drama and comedy for Sky Vision (now Sky Studios), a position she held for two years.

At Sky Vision, she was responsible for acquiring scripted content for Sky’s international sales, as well as working with Sky’s in-house commissioners for scripted series. During her tenure, Sky Vision secured series such as Britannia, Riviera and Fortitude.

Previously, Munnich was senior VP of the UK, Ireland and Africa for Sony Pictures Television. She joined Sony in 2005 as VP of distribution for Australia and New Zealand, moving to the company’s London office in 2011 to take up the senior VP role.

Goalpost Pictures is one of Australia’s leading independent producers of feature films and TV drama. It is currently in post-production on TV series Black Snow for local streamer Stan and Sundance Now and the movie Five Blind Dates for Amazon’s Prime Video in Australia. The company’s founding partners are Rosemary Blight, Kylie du Fresne, Ben Grant and Cass O’Connor.

Blight, du Fresne and Grant said in a joint statement.”With her incredible business acumen and international and Australian experience at the highest level in scripted content and production, Kylie will make a powerful addition to the Goalpost team. We are thrilled she is joining the company at a time when we are experiencing strong growth and when opportunities for quality content to be seen around the world have never been greater.”
