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 (if not the most) notable indie film distributors of The New '10s and The New '20s, with an emphasis on individual voices and creative freedom for filmmakers, producing films that run the gamut of genres. Despite the breadth of genres, topics, and types of stories produced by A24, the company's oeuvre has fairly consistent levels of both quality and tone, to the point where "A24" has almost become an adjective in some film communities for movies that are technically proficient yet deliberately non-mainstream.

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. As of 2022, their biggest financial hit is Everything Everywhere All at Once.

A24 is also an increasing upstart on the award circuit. Room and Moonlight in particular received 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 (Mahershala Ali), and Best Adapted Screenplay. They received two further Best Picture nominations afterwards with Lady Bird and Minari, and 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. 2023 ended up being a banner year for the company, as Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Whale earned rave reviews and collected dozens of awards, including a clean sweep of every major category at the 95th Academy Awardsnote .

It's also worth noting that several of the films they have 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.

While films are their main focus, they're also television producers. USA Network's Playing House, NBC's The Carmichael Show note , HBO's Euphoria, Hulu's Ramy, and Prime Video’s Hazbin Hotel are their most prominent works in the medium to date; Euphoria and Ramy have both won Emmys in acting categories.
