Eric
Fellner

Co-Chairman

Fellner joined Working Title in 1992, having been introduced to the company’s Tim Bevan by PolyGram’s Michael Kuhn, and the two have pursued a slate of star-driven prestige dramas made in conjunction with Universal after striking a lucrative deal in 1999, a formula that has reeled in 14 Academy Awards — including two for Gary Oldman’s Winston Churchill take, “Darkest Hour” — and 40 BAFTAs. Fellner and Bevan encourage a family relationship within the workplace, eschewing the indie model of one movie a year and ensuring several are under way at all times. A company commitment to diversity in film has led them to a new joint venture, the London Screen Academy, ushering in the next generation of talent through free education in film and TV.
