Jalfon, currently BBC Films’ commercial manager who’s considered a shrewd dealmaker, will start at Shine on January 11 overseeing finance and production for Liz Murdoch’s film operations Shine Pictures and Kudos Pictures. She will also produce and executive movies for Shine Pictures, the joint venture with Hollywood producer/financier New Regency, Shine and Kudos. At the BBC, Jalfon exec produced Streetdance 3D and In the Loop. Jalfon is leaving the BBC at the same time that BBC Films co-head Jane Wright is also quitting. I understand that Wright had become increasingly unhappy at Auntie. Shine’s next release is Brighton Rock, which UK distributor Optimum Releasing will open on February 4.
