Miramax Films

Foundation date: 1979
Miramax Films was founded in 1979 by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein. The name is a combination of the names of the brothers' parents (Miriam and Max Weinstein). Initially, Miramax distributed and/or produced independent and foreign films such as sex lies and videotape (1989) and The Crying Game (1992). In 1993, Buena Vista Entertainment purchased the company for $65 million. Since then, Miramax has released an endless string of box-office hits and award-winning flicks such as Pulp Fiction (1994), Clerks (1994), The English Patient (1996), Life is Beautiful (1997) and Kill Bill vols. 1-2 (2003-2004). The company also went into the anime licensing business, starting with the 1999 U.S. release of Hayao Miyazaki's 1997 masterpiece Princess Mononoke.

The Weinstein Brothers ran Miramax until September 30, 2005, when they parted ways with Buena Vista to form The Weinstein Company. In addition, they took the Dimension Films label with them.
