Partner

A24 co-founder Katz once led the film-finance group at Guggenheim Partners, putting together “The Social Network,” “Zombieland” and the “Twilight” franchise, which grossed $3.4 billion, turned Kristen Stewart into a megastar and resulted in Lionsgate buying Summit Entertainment. A24 has been going strong since 2012’s crime romp “Spring Breakers,” with more than $32 million, followed by Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring.” The independent-film company enjoyed a successful 2016 on the heels of Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age drama “Moonlight,” which earned $65 million and the Oscar for best picture. The following year cemented its A-list status with five Oscar nominations for Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” and a nod for “The Florida Project.”
