CEO

Basner is the international sales agent for hot 2021-22 awards contenders, including Pablo Larraín’s “Spencer” and Pedro Almodóvar’s “Parallel Mothers.” He just came off a good awards-season run as executive producer of feminist revenge drama “Promising Young Woman,” which received an original screenplay Oscar for Emerald Fennell, among other honors. It’s just one in a string of successes Basner has scored since he secured a $120 million revolving credit facility for FilmNation in 2019, enabling it to expand into theater (including multiple Tony nominee “The Sound Inside”) and TV productions (HBO’s “I Know This Much Is True”), as well as grow its film production efforts, as with Lena Dunham’s “Sharp Stick,” which FilmNation fully financed, and “The People We Hate at the Wedding” (Amazon), both of which Basner exec produced.
