Fenkel

Cofounder / Partner

Fenkel and fellow A24 cofounder Daniel Katz solidified the company’s status as the indie-film label of the moment with a string of smart and daring releases led by Lulu Wang’s family dramedy “The Farewell,” Ari Aster’s cerebral horror film “Midsommar” and Benny & Josh Safdie’s dark gambling drama “Uncut Gems,” starring Adam Sandler, which grossed $50 million. On the TV side, the two were responsible for HBO’s “Euphoria,” Netflix’s “John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch,” both of which earned multiple Emmy noms, and Hulu’s “Ramy,” which nabbed co-creator/­star Ramy Youssef a surprise Golden Globe for his acting on the series. Under their multi-year deal with Apple, the partners produced “On the Rocks,” which reteams Sofia Coppola and her “Lost in Translation” star Bill Murray.
