Head, Production, Amazon Original Movies

As head of motion picture production for Amazon Studios since 2015, Hope made quite a splash with a diverse array from top indie filmmakers. Amazon has ramped up the market for independent films by blending traditional theatrical exhibition with the strong marketing and distribution muscle provided by its vast retail platform. Amazon Studios’ upcomers include Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Cold War,” Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” and Mike Leigh’s “Peterloo.” Current films include Dan Fogelman’s “Life Itself” and Felix Van Groeningen’s “Beautiful Boy,” which both showed at TIFF. Hope began by his career producing for such directors as Ang Lee and Michel Gondry. He ran the San Francisco Film Society before running the streaming site Fandor.
