Faith Penhale appointed Managing Director Pathe Productions Limited in the UK

Pathe today announced that Faith Penhale will be joining its UK operation, Pathe Productions Limited, on 1st March 2023 as its new Managing Director.


Penhale is currently CEO of Lookout Point, one of the UK’s leading producers of scripted television, responsible for such critical and commercial hits as GENTLEMAN JACK, LES MISERABLES, HAPPY VALLEY and WAR & PEACE.  In her new role, Penhale’s immediate focus will be on leading Pathe UK’s expansion into television drama, building on the company’s unique position within the British creative community as a home for the very best storytellers.


After 23 years with Pathe, Cameron McCracken will be stepping down as Managing Director to assume the newly created role of Head of Film, reporting to Penhale.   McCracken will continue to manage the production and distribution of the film slate which includes Richard Eyre’s ALLELUJAH (starring amongst others Jennifer Saunders, Bally Gill, Derek Jacobi and Judi Dench); and Oliver Parker’s THE GREAT ESCAPER (starring Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson).


“Pathe is iconic,” says Penhale “setting the bar for the highest quality filmmaking.  It is amazing that during Cameron’s tenure, Pathe’s productions have been nominated for 70 BAFTAs and 50 Oscars, ranging from SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE to PHILOMENA and from THE QUEEN to SELMA.  The opportunity to build on this unparalleled history - to be the most exceptional, talent focussed, proudly independent home for the best storytellers - was irresistible. I have had the most unforgettable 7 years at Lookout Point and with BBC Studios and while I am sad to be saying goodbye to many inspirational friends and colleagues, I can’t wait to get started on this next new chapter.”


Ardavan Safaee, President Pathe Films commented: “We are thrilled to welcome Faith, whose extraordinary skills and experience will lead Pathe into the world of scripted television - our new primary focus in the UK. Her track record and her will to continue what Cameron has been building for many years, is in perfect alignment with Pathe’s ongoing efforts to be the natural home for the very best talents. We can’t wait for her to arrive and start building our new slate”.
