Karmitz brought French indie producer, distributor and exhibitor MK2 roaring back from the lockdown, presenting nine films at the Cannes Film Festival in June 2021, including Andrea Arnold’s “Cow,” Jonas Carpignano’s “A Chiara” and Joachim Trier’s “The Worst Person in the World,” the latter of which he produced. He launched the AVOD platform MK2 Curiosity and the conference and master class program MK2 Institut and also opened Hotel Paradiso in Paris, which has projection screens in each of its 36 rooms and an open-air rooftop cinema. In the traditional exhibition realm, he took over the historic movie theater Cine Paz (opened in 1943) in Madrid, bringing MK2’s presence in Spain to 11 cinemas, and produced a retrospective of the works of Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami at Paris’ Centre Pompidou.
