In a surprise move, Mark Woods, one of Australia's high-profile film executives, has exited as head of acquisitions and investment for the Premium Movie Partnership's Showtime and Encore pay TV movie channels. In his role, Woods oversaw the sourcing of independent movies, which comprised up to 48% of Showtime's annual 301 movie premieres, acquiring films from almost all of Australia's independent distributors. Woods' position was seen as critical to the local industry because Showtime/PMP is one of Australia's largest and most consistent co financiers of local movies, backing some 68 projects from script stage in the past five years.
