Karmitz

Chairman / CEO

Karmitz sold off MK2’s Canadian theatrical distribution division, MK2 Mile End, which has its own streaming service, to Montreal-based producer-distributor Sphere in April. The next month, he traveled to the Cannes Film Festival, where MK2 had six films world premiering: Léonor Serraille’s family drama “Mother and Son,” Serge Bozon’s musical comedy “Don Juan,” Marie Kreutzer’s “Corsage,” Davy Chou’s “All the People I’ll Never Be,” Emmanuelle Nicot debut “Love According to Dalva” and Clément Cogitore’s “Sons of Ramses.” While there, he closed a deal to acquire the French and international rights to documentary and narrative features by Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck from Velvet Film, adding to an 800-film MK2 library that already included collections from Charlie Chaplin, François Truffaut, Claude Chabrol, Jacques Demy and Agnès Varda, among others.
