A24 is an American independent entertainment business that focuses on film and television production as well as film distribution. It was created on August 20, 2012, by Daniel Katz, David Fenkel, and John Hodges. Its headquarters are in New York City.
It is known for establishing the current horror genre’s temptations. The films under the brand have created a unique cinematic style that defies categorization. ‘Saint Maud’ is the latest in a long line of evocative, spine-chilling films that promise a bright future for a long-forgotten genre.
Prior to A24, Katz, Fenkel, and Hodges worked in film and production before departing to co-found the company, which was initially known as A24 Films and specialized on film distribution. The company’s growth began in 2013 with the release of A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III and continued with the release of Spring Breakers later that year.
After acquiring the US rights to Ex Machina and Room, as well as the worldwide rights to The Witch, they became more well-known, and their fan base has grown significantly since then. In late 2013, they signed arrangements with DirecTV Cinema and Amazon Prime to distribute some of their films, and their name was abbreviated to A24 in 2016.
The studio has received a total of 25 Academy Award nominations as of 2019. A24’s films received Oscars for Best Actress (Brie Larson in Room), Best Documentary Feature (Amy), and Best Visual Effects in 2016. (Ex Machina).
Moonlight won the Academy Awards for Best Picture (the company’s first), Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor in 2017 (Mahershala Ali).
