Kahn bows prod’n house, gets funds

Company has $25 mil investment, 'Rope' first up

NEW YORK — Gotham’s indie film scene has a major new financial player: Michael Kahn, formerly of Ikahn Prods., has launched Winter Films, which plans on producing three to four films a year in the $5 million-$15 million budget range.

The company has secured a $25 million equity investment and is out to lenders to complete its coin capture.

“With our primary financing now in place, we have the flexibility to make movies on our own terms and provide an environment for talented people to realize their creative goals,” Kahn said.

Winter Films is in post-production on its maiden film, tyro helmer Matt Brown’s twentysomething ensemble drama “Rope Walk,” which features Peter Facinelli (“Supernova”) and Michelle Hicks (“Twin Falls Idaho”).

In addition to Kahn, Winter Films is headed by exec veep Steve Hodges and Erick Feitshans, who recently ankled a senior VP post at Morgan Creek to become Winter’s chief operating officer.
