Giant Screen Films and D3D Cinema have welcomed Mark Katz as their new Senior Vice President of Film Distribution and Theatre Development.
In his new role, he has been tasked with driving D3D’s expansion into new venues.
Katz joins the company from National Geographic where he represented a diverse catalogue of specialty, art and independent films including award-winners “Jerusalem”, “U2 3D” and “Sea Monsters”. His career to date has encompassed roles at Sony Pictures, IMAX Corporation and nWave Pictures.
Company President, Don Kempf said he was ‘elated’ that Katz was joining the team: “Mark brings a wealth of experience in sales and marketing as well as a keen customer insight, and his reputation in our industry is second to none. Given the strength and diversity of our current film catalogue and pipeline, the timing of his arrival couldn’t be better.”
