BN Films Expands to New York with Jonathan Gray

International production company BN Films has expanded into New York, opening an East Coast office with Jonathan Gray, senior partner of the law firm Gray Krauss Stratford Sandler Des Rochers LLP, at its helm. Gray, who will also continue at his law practice, will run the new office, developing and producing feature and television projects for BN Films.

“The heart of the indie film community is in New York,” Gray told Variety. “And things are done a little differently here. I think it’s a little more straightforward, and it’s important for BN” to have a foothold on both coasts.

BN Films, which was launched in December 2012, will premiere “Words With Gods,” starring Demian Bichir in its ensemble cast, at the Venice Film Festival. BN also just wrapped post-production “Captive,” starring David Oyelowo and Kate Mara.

BN Films launched in December 2012, and the addition of Gray in the New York office will continue to broaden its reach by developing and producing content for both the U.S. and International markets. Gray’s law firm has served as production counsel on more than 400 films, including “Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire,” “Black Swan,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and “Another Earth.”

BN President of Production Katrina Wolfe will continue to oversee and produce projects out of the Los Angeles office, where company co-founders and principals Alex Garcia and Lucas Akoskin are also based.
