In 2021, Film Victoria appointed two new faces to its Games and Digital Content team to oversee the organisation’s distribution of grants for the development and production of games projects in the state of Victoria: Paul Callaghan and Lise Leitner.

Callaghan comes from a notable background in the Victorian games scene, having been a developer, and also having directed the Freeplay Festival from 2009 to 2012. He’s also worked as an educator and creative producer, working on play projects in various formats for prestigious institutions such as BAFTA, ACMI, the ABC, and the British Council, among others.
