Lisa Schwartz

Schwartz oversees a trio of content power centers for AMC Networks: IFC Films, home to large, indie, cast-driven films; IFC Midnight, which features thriller/horror and art house erotica titles; and Sundance Selects, which releases docs and foreign-language films. The content under her purview is turning heads in both consumer and critical circles. The Sundance Selects film “I, Daniel Blake” won the Palme d’Or in Cannes in 2016, the second consecutive of the studio’s films to win the prize; and the film “45 Years” garnered an Oscar nomination for best actress.
