A24 is an American independent entertainment company founded on August 20, 2012, by Daniel Katz, David Fenkel, and John Hodges that specializes in film and television production, as well as film distribution. It is based in New York City.
Katz, Fenkel, and Hodges, prior to A24, worked in film and production before leaving to eventually co-found the company, originally A24 Films, which specialized in film distribution. Starting off moderately in 2013 with A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, the company's growth started with the release of Spring Breakers later that year. They became better known after picking up the U.S. rights to Ex Machina and Room, and worldwide rights to The Witch, growing substantially since then. They entered into deals with DirecTV Cinema and Amazon Prime in late 2013, with some films distributed through them, and the name was shortened to A24 in 2016.
As of 2019, the company has received a total of 25 Academy Award nominations. In 2016, films distributed by A24 won Academy Awards for Best Actress, Best Documentary Feature, and Best Visual Effects. In 2017, Moonlight won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor.
A24's television division has produced The Carmichael Show, At Home with Amy Sedaris, Ramy, and Euphoria.
