Indie Companies: A24 Joins Forces with Apple

Apple is joining forces with Oscar-winning indie studio A24 (Moonlight) to produce a slate of films for the tech behemoth.

The partnership comes as Apple is delving more deeply into making its own shows and movies, having previously signed deals with the likes of Steven Spielberg, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey.

The deal with A24 is a “multiyear agreement” and involves multiple films. It’s unclear if the movies the studio makes will be released in theaters or if they will premiere on some kind of digital platform. Financial terms of the pact were not disclosed.

The studio is one the hottest brands in the arthouse space. Launched in 2012, A24 has released edgy, auteur-driven projects. It won the Best Picture Oscar for “Moonlight,” and also scored with such critically acclaimed features as “Room,” “The Witch,” and “Ex Machina.”
