WA based Minderoo Pictures has appointed Malinda Wink as a new Executive Director.

Since launching last year with an initial funding commitment of $10 million, Minderoo Pictures has several projects in development include a feature film collaboration between Louie Psihoyos (The Cove, The Game Changers) and Josh Murphy (Artifishal), Honey Ant Dreamers directed by Emily-Anyupa Butcher and Michael Cordell (Year of the Dogs) and First Born, produced by Workshop TV.

Ms Wink was Executive Producer of several of 2040, Adam Goodes: The Final Quarter, and Big Deal: Is Our Democracy for Sale?

In 2019, Ms Wink joined Doc Society (formerly BRITDOC) as Global Director of Good Pitch and launched Doc Society’s Australian programs including the ABC and Doc Society Climate and Environment Shorts initiative. She was previously Executive Director of Good Pitch Australia whose films included That Sugar Film, Gayby Baby, Blue, Frackman, and In My Blood It Runs, and Executive Director of Ian Darling’s Shark Island Institute.

She joins Executive Producer Richard Harris and Development Producer Cody Greenwood.

“Minderoo Pictures leverages the extraordinary track record of the Minderoo Foundation in tackling some of the world’s most urgent challenges, from climate change and modern slavery to early childhood development,” Ms Wink said.

“Great storytelling has the power to illuminate issues that need our urgent attention, and imagine a just future. I am very excited to work with Minderoo Pictures, building on the work of Richard and Cody to champion projects from diverse perspectives, and amplifying stories that challenge the status quo, inspire real action, and shape our world.”

Minderoo Foundation’s Director of Arts & Culture Ella McNeill said, “Malinda Wink has transformed the social impact documentary landscape in Australia, showing that documentaries can raise our consciousness and change the way we live.

“I’ve been deeply moved and inspired by many of the documentaries Malinda’s been involved with, and I can’t wait to see the impactful, creative, and changemaking projects she helps bring to life for Minderoo Pictures.”

Minderoo Pictures is set to release Blueback, directed by Robert Connolly (The Dry) based on Tim Winton’s beloved novella, following its world premiere at the recent 2022 Toronto International Film Festival.
