Micheal Mosca – Producer

 

As the President & Chief Executive Officer of Equinoxe Films since 1996, which he later purchased in 2009, Michael Mosca has played a pivotal role in the strategic management and profitability for the company’s various divisions. Under his leadership, the company acquires and produces and distributes film and television properties in Canada and around the world.

Prior to joining Equinoxe in 1995 as director of the Home Video division, Mr. Mosca worked in the area of exhibition for 15 years, eight of them as director of operations for Quebec at Cineplex Odeon Corporation, one of Canada’s largest exhibition chains. During his tenure at Equinoxe, Mr. Mosca has made an indelible mark by acquiring and overseeing the release of The Passion of The Christ, which earned $25 million at the Canadian box office, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which earned more than $30 million at the Canadian box office, and the hit comedy Mambo Italiano, which has become the highest grossing English Canadian film since 1981, earning $5.5 million at the box office in its Canadian theatrical release, with sales to more than 40 international territories.

He is also responsible for establishing the company’s production arm, which kicked off with a multi-award winning feature film in 2005, Un Dimanche à Kigali (A Sunday in Kigali). His most recent productions include award-winning A Million Colours (2011), a powerful story set in the last few years of apartheid; and Winnie (2012), a drama that chronicles the life of Winnie Mandela starring Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson and Oscar nominated Terrence Howard.

Mr. Mosca’s career in the film business spans over 30 years, in both distribution and exhibition. He is President of the Motion Pictures Pioneers Association of Quebec and is also a Member of the Board of Cine Québec.
