Buy Props from Your Favorite A24 Films For Charity

The entertainment company is auctioning props from Midsommar, Uncut Gems, and more for NYC charities in the wake of the virus.

They've also got their marketing strategy down to a T, drawing the sort of cult fanbase and loyalty that mirror those of successful indie record labels.

It's not surprising that there is already Oscar buzz surrounding his performance.
