Popular BIFF head programmer Kiki Fung will move to Brisbane Marketing.

The office of the chief executive of Screen Queensland has been a revolving door in recent years, in part reflecting the state's political instability. Those who have gone through that door include Bryan Lowe and Jennie Hughes, who last year was also BIFF director. …
