BMG vet will track indies

Samuel Goldwyn has named Danae Kokenos as its Gotham-based acquisitions director.

A veteran of the marketing departments at BMG Independents and IN Pictures, Kokenos will track independent American and foreign-language films from development to post-production, and function as the face of the Goldwyn company at foreign and domestic film fests.

“Danae’s reputation in the New York independent film world is exemplary and unblemished,” said Samuel Goldwyn marketing and distribution head Jeff Lipsky. “She brings to our company a fresh perspective and a keen sense of what the next generation of filmgoers is looking for.”

Kokenos will report to L.A.-based Lipsky.
