Kujawski

Chairman

After five years at Universal, Kujawski joined its Focus in February 2016 to help the specialty arm get its groove back, producing Oscar-winning releases “Darkest Hour,” “The Theory of Everything” and “The Danish Girls.” He also grabbed foreign distribution rights to indie sensations such as “Manchester by the Sea” and “Lady Bird.” Then the champagne corks popped for “BlacKkKlansman,” which earned Spike Lee his first Oscar (best director) and brought in nearly $100 million worldwide. And this year, the “Downton Abbey” movie looks to be an awards-season favorite. Kujawski began at indie powerhouse Good Machine, which was bought by Universal in 2001. Currently, he has 13 films in production or awaiting release, including Edgar Wright’s psychological horror-thriller “Last Night in Soho” and Jon Stewart’s political satire “Irresistible.”
