Victoria Cook  

Partner, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein + Selz

Cook’s love of movies inspired her to pursue a career in film production, but she realized she could make a better contribution to the art form by helping creatives navigate the more practical aspects of the biz. She’s helped Brett Ratner set up his doc unit, advised on the Netlix deal for “Virunga” on behalf of the filmmakers and was involved in eight Sundance films, among other deals. She also regularly participates as a mentor in Sundance labs. “I actually get to help creative people achieve their goals,” she says, adding that she rarely works on deals that she’s not a big fan of . “I am a big consumer of popular culture! … One of the reasons I became an entertainment lawyer was Jim Jarmusch. When I saw ‘Down by Law’ it completely changed my life.” And that still resonates — she worked on Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive.”
