Joanna Arnow Signs With Fusion Entertainment

Fusion Entertainment has signed on to manage Joanna Arnow, an acclaimed acclaimed writer, director, actor and editor whose narrative feature debut “The Feeling That the Time for Doing Something Has Passed” impressed audiences and critics when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in the Directors Fortnight section. The film was later acquired by Magnolia Pictures. It will be released domestically in 2024 after having its U.S. premiere this week at the New York Film Festival

This puts Arnow under the same management team as “Red Rocket” and “The Florida Project” filmmaker Sean Baker, who was an executive producer on the film.

Arnow also joins a roster of notable multi-hyphenates including “She Dies Tomorrow” filmmaker Amy Seimetz, “Cha Cha Real Smooth” director, writer and star Cooper Raiff,  and”Saint Frances” writer and star Kelly O’Sullivan. Other notable Fusion management clients include: “Triangle of Sadness” breakout Dolly De Leon; writer-directors-producers Greg Kwedar and Clint Benley, the team behind the recent Toronto Film Festival premiere “Sing Sing,” and “Love Is Strange” writer and director Ira Sachs.

“The Feeling That the Time for Doing Something Has Passed” garnered positive reviews following its premiere at Cannes. Variety called the film “[a] hilarious and clever debut.”

It was written, directed, edited by and stars Arnow, whose previous shorts include “Bad at Dancing,” which won the Berlinale Silver Bear, “Laying Out” and the feature doc “I hate myself :)”

Scott Cohen (“Gilmore Girls”), Babak Tafti (“Billions,” “Succession”) and Alysia Reiner (“Fig,” Orange Is the New Black”) and Michael Cyril Creighton (“Only Murders In the Building”) co-star alongside Arnow. The film was produced by Graham Swon from Ravenser Odd and Pierce Varous from Nice Dissolve. Magnetic Labs’ Adam Mirels and Robbie Mirels also served as executive producers.
