A24 is an American entertainment company that finances, produces, and distributes independent films.

Since its founding in 2012 by Daniel Katz, David Fenkel, and John Hodges, A24 has become one of the most notable indie film studios of The New '10s, with an emphasis on individual voices and creative freedom for filmmakers, producing films that run the gamut of genres.

2013's Spring Breakers was one of their first major successes (critically and financially), with later films like Ex Machina, The Lobster, and The VVitch getting similar notices.

A24 is also an increasing upstart on the award circuit. Room and Moonlight in particular have gotten much attention in that regard; the former won Brie Larson an Academy Award for Best Actress in conjunction with additional nominations for Best Director (Lenny Abrahamson) and Best Picture, while the latter won trophies for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (for Mahershala Ali's performance), and Best Adapted Screenplay. A24 also produced the Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, which won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, and Ex Machina, which won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

It's also worth noting that some of their films they distributed and/or produced are notorious for their sharp Critical Dissonance, with strong reception among critics and film communities against mixed reception among general audiences. This is often seen with many of their horror films such as The Witch, It Comes at Night, and Hereditary, but occasionally some of their non-horror films can also attain the divide (Uncut Gems being the most notable).

While films are their main focus, they're also television producers. USA Network's Playing House, NBC's The Carmichael Show note , and HBO's Euphoria are their most prominent works in the medium to date.
