David Kosse
Charlie Gray
United States



VP, International Film

After exiting Film4 in 2016 to launch STX’s London-based international arm, this year the veteran entertainment exec moved again, when Netflix chose Kosse to head up its new international film division, where he’s focusing on global acquisitions and production of non-English-language films. And this is clearly not Kosse’s first rodeo, as he launched and built distribution powerhouse Universal Pictures International in his nine years, growing it into a worldwide operation with bases and joint ventures in 40 countries, and then oversaw STX’s 50-plus film distribution agreements in his short time there. In the past five years, Kosse has executive produced over 20 feature films that garnered abundant accolades, including two Oscars, five BAFTAs and four Golden Globes for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
