Katz led the film finance group at Guggenheim Partners, participating in transactions including “The Social Network,” “Zombieland” and the “Twilight” franchise. The five “Twilight” movies grossed $3.4 billion, turned Kristen Stewart into a worldwide star and resulted in Lionsgate purchasing Summit Entertainment.

A24’s first hit came in 2013, with James Franco’s “Spring Breakers” grossing more than $32 million globally, followed by Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring” with $19 million. The company saw significant success in the 2015 awards season with “Room,” which won Brie Larson an Oscar, and “Ex Machina,” which earned Oscar and Golden Globe nominations.

A24 scored its biggest grosser in Barry Jenkins’ 2016 coming-of-age drama “Moonlight,” which earned $65 million worldwide; the film was also a critical success, winning the best picture Oscar. Upcoming releases include “The Florida Project” with Willem Dafoe, Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” “Lady Bird” with Saoirse Ronan and Franco’s “The Disaster Artist.”
