“Yasmin and Patrick each bring unique experiences and perspectives to Concordia, but they are alike in their talent for discovering powerful and surprising stories, their unwavering support for ambitious filmmakers, and their belief in the potential for film to shape culture for the better,” said King, Concordia Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Narrative. “It’s a challenging time for our world and our business, but we feel lucky that Patrick and Yasmin have joined the company now when we are able to keep working and building our slate of new projects together.”
