Quinn

Founder / CEO

Quinn launched independent producer-distributor Neon in 2017, and in just four years its movies earned an impressive 12 Oscar noms and five wins (including best picture for “Parasite”). He garnered more success in 2021-22 by nabbing domestic distribution rights (shared with Topic Studios) for Pablo Larraín’s Princess Diana biopic “Spencer,” starring Kristen Stewart, and North American rights to Julia Ducournau’s “Titane,” which earned the Palme d’Or at Cannes, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s “Memoria,” starring Tilda Swinton. Of late, the company, which has fewer than 30 employees, has ramped up in-house efforts with 10 feature and documentary projects in various stages of development and production, including a narrative remake of the documentary “The Painter and the Thief” and Brandon Cronenberg’s “Infinity Pool.”
