Rebecca Petriello Founder, CEO | Nike Imoru Co-founder, President | Ty Accornero Media Investment Advisor
At Rebel Kat we finance and produce quality content for film and television. Our mission is two-fold: to bring under-represented stories into the mainstream commercial production and to celebrate content that demonstrates the power of the human spirit to overcome adverse or challenging circumstances. The Rebel Kat vision embraces diversity and inclusion; we amplify the former, and support the latter. We are ceaselessly committed to equality and recognise that our strengths lie in the richness of our differences. We are avid story-tellers with a passion for stage and screen, large and small, working alongside our dynamic global partners who are at the top of their game.
