Katz

Cofounder / Partner

Katz and fellow cofounder David Fenkel’s indie label A24 earned just a single Oscar nomination in 2020 (cinematography for “The Lighthouse”), giving it a total of 25 since its 2012 launch. But the company released some of the year’s most intriguing films, including Lulu Wang’s family dramedy “The Farewell,” Ari Aster’s Sweden-set horror outing “Midsommar” and Benny & Josh Safdie’s intense dramatic thriller “Uncut Gems,” starring Adam Sandler.
