Co-Founder / Partner

Under Katz’s leadership (and along with fellow co-founders David Fenkel and the now departed John Hodges), the indie entertainment company has reeled in 25 Oscar nominations since its 2012 launch, most notably for “Lady Bird” (2017), with five nods, and “Moonlight” (2016), which won three statuettes, including one for best picture. In 2018 alone, the company’s releases included Jonah Hill’s “Mid90s,” Bo Burnham’s “Eighth Grade” and Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed.” The shingle is also responsible for two of the most creepy, unsettling films of the decade, writer-director Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” (2018) and “Midsommar” (2019). Prior to A24, Katz was head of the film-finance group at Guggenheim Partners (“The Social Network,” “Zombieland,” the “Twilight” franchise) and worked with Fenkel at art-house distributor ThinkFilm.
