Los Angeles, CA – March 29, 2021 – Village Roadshow Entertainment Group’s (VREG) CEO Steve Mosko announced today that tenured film executive Tristen Tuckfield has joined the Company as Executive Vice President, Feature Film. Tuckfield will work in partnership with Executive Vice President, Feature Film Jillian Apfelbaum to co-run Village Roadshow Pictures (VRP) film content across all platforms. Tuckfield will use her financing, packaging and distribution prowess to complement Apfelbaum’s creative and production experience to continue to mine titles from VREG’s parent company, Vine Alternative Investments’, vast library of IP as well as continue to build upon VRP’s growing slate of original IP. Both executives will report directly to Mosko.
“I know that Tristen will pair perfectly with Jillian to create an opportunity for a dynamic, forward-thinking partnership as we continue to expand our film division,” said Mosko. “I am excited to work with both Tristen and Jillian as we build on the past two years of film development and take advantage of this opportunity to create world-class storytelling under the Village Roadshow Pictures banner.”
Stated Tuckfield, “I’m so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had so far in my career and for the amazing colleagues I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside. I’m eager to bring my unique background to further compliment Steve, Jillian and the talented team at Village Roadshow; a company whose brand I have long admired. I’m beyond excited to join this team and further build upon the original IP being developed and the stellar in-house library while continuing to champion filmmaker’s voices. My passion is bringing stories to the widest audience possible and I can’t wait to continue that mission at Village Roadshow.”
As Executive Vice President of 30West, Tuckfield was responsible for financing, packaging, and distribution of both scripted and unscripted films and television properties including the co-acquisition of I, TONYA with NEON, the sales strategy for LATE NIGHT which sold to Amazon, and the packaging and sales of last spring’s hit show “Tiger King” to Netflix.
