Nicolas Winding Refn’s critically acclaimed film “Drive” saw him elevated from cult film director to one of Hollywood's most talked about names, a reputation he maintained with his follow up films “Only God Forgives,” which premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival to critical acclaim, and “Neon Demon,” which also premiered at the prestigious Festival, in 2016. Refn also wrote and directed the Amazon miniseries “Too Old To Die Young,” a detective thriller which premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
Refn also brings his passion and unique sensibility to the world of commercials. He has created memorable films for brands including Gucci, Lincoln MKC, and Nike.
In 2018 Refn started the streaming service byNWR, an “unadultered cultural expressway to the arts,” born from his passion for rare, forgotten, and unknown films.
