David
Fenkel

Cofounder / Partner

In  summer 2021, it was reported that Fenkel and fellow A24 cofounder Daniel Katz had been looking to sell the indie film prodco and distributor for between $2.5 billion and $3 billion. The deal didn’t go down at the time, but the fact that they had the confidence to set such a high price speaks to the status of the company. Founded in 2012 after Fenkel departed Oscilloscope Labora­tories, A24 has become roughly equivalent to what Miramax was in the ’90s — absent all the negative baggage — with Oscar-winning hits including “Moonlight” and “Lady Bird.” In recent years, it’s been expanding its presence on the small screen, with acclaimed series “Euphoria” (HBO) and “Ramy” (HBO). Current releases include Joel Coen’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth” (Apple).
