A24 has been able to work with companies such as: Blumhouse Productions, Bleeker Street, Guggenheim Partners, and Annapurna Pictures.
Accused of being a scrappy film distribution company that could re-shape Hollywood:
A24 has established itself as the film industry’s most forward-thinking company by releasing the kind of midsized, stylish, quality films that seemed on the verge of going extinct, transforming them into a collective theatrical experience, and aiming them squarely at a demographic that would rather watch movies on their phones. It’s not remarkable that A24 had set such a goal—it’s remarkable that the company is accomplishing it. Source
