Picturehouse acquired and released Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning "Pan’s Labyrinth"; Olivier Dahan’s "La Vie en Rose" (winner of two Academy Awards, including best actress for Marion Cotillard); Sergei Bodrov’s "Mongol"; Robert Altman’s "A Prairie Home Companion"; and Seth Gordon’s documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters." When Time Warner folded the operations of New Line and Picturehouse into the Warner Bros. family, the brand continued to live on through the home entertainment and television releases of the films.

Berney has also overseen the U.S. theatrical releases of blockbusters such as "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and "The Passion of the Christ" as well as critically hailed films including Christopher Nolan’s "Memento," Alfonso Cuaron’s "Y Tu Mamá También" and Niki Caro’s "Whale Rider."

As President, Theatrical Distribution of FilmDistrict, Berney released "Insidious," "Soul Surfer," "Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark" and "Drive," which in total grossed over $150 million in domestic box office. Previously, as CEO of Apparition, Berney presided over the release of "Bright Star," "Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day," "The Young Victoria" and "The Runaways."

Entertainment marketing veteran Jeanne Berney most recently served as Executive Vice President of Marketing at FilmDistrict. Before that, she was Executive Vice President of Marketing and Administration for Apparition, Director of Public Relations and Marketing at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and ran the Film and Digital Entertainment Group at Rogers & Cowan and held publicity and promotion positions at Rysher Entertainment, Savoy Pictures and Miramax Films.
