Jan Chapman: peerless producer

Richard Kuipers profiles producer Jan Chapman, whose credits include Come in Spinner (1989), The Piano (1993), Lantana (2001) and Bright Star (2009).

'Jan Chapman’s outstanding success can be attributed to a combination of good judgement and her formidable skill in attracting major talent and nurturing, packaging and sending their stories into cinemas and onto television screens.’

In recent years Jan has headed both the Asia Pacific Screen Awards International Jury (2012) and Sydney Film Festival jury (2010), and served on the Berlinale jury (2011).

Read the Jan Chapman portrait. It also includes a screenography and stills gallery.
