Exec to PR post at GK Films

Larry Angrisani fills slot vacated by Maxine Leonard

Larry Angrisani has joined Graham King’s GK Films as senior VP, worldwide marketing and publicity, to fill the slot vacated by Maxine Leonard.

Based out of GK Films’ Santa Monica office, Angrisani will be responsible for global marketing and publicity.

He recently spearheaded Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” Golden Globe campaign, consulted for the Cinequest Film Festival and worked as an awards strategist for USA Network.

Angrisani spent seven years at Miramax as senior VP of international publicity and awards and headed international campaigns for “There Will Be Blood,” “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.” He also worked on the award campaigns for “No Country for Old Men” and “The Queen” and was responsible for the international publicity for “Finding Neverland,” “Sin City,” “Cold Mountain” and “The Aviator,” on which he first worked with King.

“After working on so many quality films and with an extensive list of accolades to his credit, Larry will bring a creative energy to the company as we continue to grow our brand,” King said.

Angrisani also spent seven years as a publicist in Universal’s international publicity department.

Joelle Benazra, an international publicity manager under Angrisani at Miramax, will be joining GK Films in a similar role.

The company is currently in post-production on “Hugo Cabret,” “London Boulevard” and “The Rum Diary.”
