Miramax
Miramax
(also known as Miramax
Miramax
Films) is an American entertainment company known for producing and distributing films and television shows. It is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Miramax
Miramax
was founded in 1979 by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, and was a leading independent film motion picture distribution and production company before it was acquired by the Walt Disney Company
Walt Disney Company
on June 30, 1993. Shortly thereafter, Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction
was released. The Weinsteins operated Miramax
Miramax
with more creative and financial independence than any other division of Disney until September 30, 2005 when they left the company and founded a new studio, The Weinstein Company. Miramax was sold by Disney to Filmyard Holdings, a joint venture of Colony NorthStar, Tutor-Saliba Corporation, and Qatar Investment Authority, in 2010, ending Disney's 17-year ownership of the studio. In 2016, ownership of the company was transferred to the beIN Media Group.

History[edit] Independent era (1979–1993)[edit] The company was founded by the brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein in Buffalo, New York
Buffalo, New York
in 1979, and was named by combining the first names of their parents Miriam and Max.[1] It was created to distribute independent films deemed commercially unfeasible by the major studios. The company's first major success came when the Weinsteins teamed up with British producer Martin Lewis and acquired the U.S. rights to two concert films Lewis had produced of benefit shows for human rights organization Amnesty International. The Weinsteins worked with Lewis to distill the two films into one film for the US marketplace. The resulting film, the American version of The Secret Policeman's Other Ball was a successful release for Miramax
Miramax
in the summer of 1982. This release presaged a modus operandi that the company would undertake later in the 1980s of acquiring films from international filmmakers and reworking them to suit American sensibilities and audiences. Among the company's other breakthrough films as distributors in the late 1980s and early 1990s were Scandal; Sex, Lies, and Videotape; Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!; The Crying Game; Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction
and Clerks. The company also made films such as Flirting with Disaster, Heavenly Creatures and Shakespeare in Love. Miramax
Miramax
acquired and/or produced many other films that did extraordinarily well financially. The company became one of the leaders of the independent film boom of the 1990s. Miramax
Miramax
produced or distributed seven films with box office grosses totaling more than $100 million; its most successful title, Chicago, earned more than $300 million worldwide.[2] The company was also exceptionally successful in securing Academy Award nominations for its releases, many of which resulted in Oscar wins. In 1992, Miramax
Miramax
began a deal with Paramount Pictures
Paramount Pictures
for VHS and TV distribution of certain Miramax
Miramax
releases. Paramount would also distribute theatrically certain releases that might have commercial appeal (such as Bob Roberts, though video rights to that film were owned by Live Entertainment
Entertainment
– which is now Lions Gate Entertainment). Paramount still owns video rights to some of these films, while TV distribution is now with Trifecta Entertainment
Entertainment
& Media,[3] while the Disney-owned Miramax
Miramax
films are distributed by Disney–ABC Television
Television
Group. Disney era (1993–2010)[edit] On June 30, 1993, Miramax
Miramax
was purchased for $60 million by The Walt Disney Company, which paved a way for Disney to enter the independent film market.[4] Harvey and Bob Weinstein continued to operate Miramax until they left the company on September 30, 2005. During their tenure, the Weinstein brothers ran Miramax
Miramax
independently of other Disney subsidiaries, and as a result had more autonomy than the other Disney-owned companies. Disney, however, had the final say on what Miramax
Miramax
could release (see Fahrenheit 9/11
Fahrenheit 9/11
and Dogma, for examples).[4] Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment
Entertainment
division released Miramax
Miramax
output. With a more stable budget, Miramax
Miramax
began moving beyond acquisitions and distribution and into film productions. Until September 30, 2005 the company also operated the label Dimension Films, which was solely founded by Bob to specialize in teen, horror, and other genre films,[4] and created the Scream and Scary Movie film franchises. Harvey funded larger projects and from up and coming directors including Robert Rodriguez, Gus Van Sant
Gus Van Sant
and Quentin Tarantino. Some of the films earned Oscars.[4] In 1997, Miramax
Miramax
joined Peter Jackson
Peter Jackson
as a primary financial backer in attempting to get the Lord of the Rings films produced. Disney disliked the cost of a two-parter, requesting that it be produced as a single film. Jackson and Saul Zaentz
Saul Zaentz
rejected Disney's request and looked for another studio or financier. Thus, Miramax
Miramax
sold the rights for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit to New Line Cinema
New Line Cinema
in August 1998 for about $12 million, which led The Lord of the Rings to be produced as a trilogy. Miramax
Miramax
retained a 5% stake in the films' gross and then gave 2.5% to the Weinsteins.[5] Through Miramax, Harvey founded Talk
Talk
magazine with Tina Brown
Tina Brown
in 1998 (it shut down in 2002), albeit without the approval of then-Disney chief Michael Eisner, which upset Eisner. Also that year, 30 former employees filed suit over unpaid overtime wages.[4] By 2003, Miramax
Miramax
was less operative in the independent film market and became more of a mini-major as the company only acquired 3 films while producing Cold Mountain for $80 million. The Weinsteins claimed the company was profitable, but Walt Disney Co. president Robert Iger indicated in June 2004 that they were not properly accounting for "account standard overhead, distribution fees, bonuses that we pay Bob and Harvey. Nor are they applying current accounting rules."[4] After extensive negotiations and much media and industry speculation, on March 30, 2005, Disney and the Weinsteins announced that they would not renew their contractual relationship when their existing agreements expired at the end of September 2005. The primary source of dispute was over distribution of Fahrenheit 9/11
Fahrenheit 9/11
by Michael Moore.[6] Disney's film studio consortium, Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group, assumed control of Miramax, which was projected to have a smaller annual production budget. The Weinsteins started a new film production company called The Weinstein Company, and took the Dimension Films label with them. The Miramax
Miramax
name remained with the film studio owned by Disney. Production at Miramax
Miramax
was taken over by Daniel Battsek,[6] who had been head of Buena Vista International in the UK. Battsek refocused Miramax
Miramax
to produce films of high quality but low budget. Maple Pictures
Maple Pictures
held the rights to distribute Miramax
Miramax
films in Canada from 2008 up until August 10, 2011, when Maple Pictures
Maple Pictures
was acquired by Alliance Films.[7] Attorney Bert Fields of Greenberg Glusker Fields represented Bob and Harvey Weinstein
Harvey Weinstein
through years of skirmishes between Miramax
Miramax
and its corporate owner Disney, rarely making public statements until he settled up the brothers’ departure in 2005, without litigation.[8] On October 3, 2009, Disney announced that the staff of Miramax
Miramax
was to be reduced by 70%, and the number of releases would be reduced by half to just three films per year. The label's marketing, distribution and administrative functions, which had operated independently, would be folded into the parent studio in Burbank. The move became effective in January 2010.[9] On October 30, 2009, Disney announced the resignation of Daniel Battsek as President of Miramax
Miramax
Films, effective when the transition from the studio in New York to Burbank was completed.[10] The company merged its operations with The Walt Disney Studios on January 28, 2010, shutting down Miramax's separate New York and Los Angeles offices.[6][11] Though Disney Studio Chairman Dick Cook was a staunch supporter of Miramax, the brand was less of a priority for CEO Bob Iger, whose strategy was to focus on Disney's branded mass entertainment that can be exploited across Disney's theme parks, television and consumer products. Following Disney's $4 billion acquisition of Marvel Entertainment
Entertainment
in 2009, Cook was succeeded by Rich Ross.[12] As a result, Miramax
Miramax
was relegated to the status of distribution label within the Walt Disney Company.[13] The company confirmed that it was looking into the selling the Miramax
Miramax
label on February 9, 2010, with Bob Iger
Bob Iger
explaining "We determined that continuing to invest in new Miramax
Miramax
movies wasn't necessarily a core strategy of ours".[14] On November 23, 2010, it was reported that Google
Google
was interested in purchasing the digital rights to the Miramax
Miramax
library to improve the premium content offerings on YouTube, and compete with similar services such as Hulu
Hulu
and Netflix.[15] Post-Disney era (2010–present)[edit] On December 3, 2010, Disney closed the sale of Miramax
Miramax
for US$663 million to Filmyard Holdings, an investment group and joint venture of Colony NorthStar, Tutor-Saliba Corporation, and Qatar Investment Authority. The sale included 700 film titles, books, development projects, and the "Miramax" name. Mike Lang, the former News Corporation
News Corporation
business development executive who was selected as the CEO of Miramax,[16] indicated that the company would focus on their existing library, though they would continue making original content.[17] After the sale was closed, some movies already developed at Miramax, including The Tempest and Gnomeo & Juliet, were eventually released by Disney under its Touchstone Pictures
Touchstone Pictures
banner, and theatrical distribution of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark[18] and The Debt[19] were shifted to FilmDistrict
FilmDistrict
and Focus Features
Focus Features
respectively. On February 11, 2011, Miramax
Miramax
entered a home entertainment agreement with Lions Gate Entertainment
Entertainment
and StudioCanal
StudioCanal
to distribute over 550 titles from the Miramax
Miramax
library on DVD and Blu-ray. Lionsgate
Lionsgate
will handle distribution in the United States, with StudioCanal
StudioCanal
handling European distribution.[20][21] On February 17, they struck a deal with Echo Bridge Home Entertainment
Entertainment
to distribute the company's additional 251-title catalog domestically on DVD/Blu-ray.[22][23] The latter deal expired in October 2014,[24] after which Lionsgate
Lionsgate
expanded its existing deal to include Echo Bridge's collection of the library; thus, Lionsgate
Lionsgate
has full home entertainment distribution of the entire Miramax
Miramax
library in North America.[25] From 2012 to 2017, Warner Home Video had assumed Japanese home entertainment distribution of the Miramax
Miramax
catalog. On March 1, 2011, Miramax
Miramax
renewed its Canadian distribution deal with Alliance Films, which had been a distributor of Miramax
Miramax
releases in Canada from 1987 to 2008 and will replace Maple Pictures
Maple Pictures
(which had distributed Miramax
Miramax
releases from 2008 to 2011). Alliance will have access to all of the company's library titles again and distribution rights to new Miramax
Miramax
films produced in the next five years.[26] On March 25, 2011, Miramax
Miramax
entered licensing talks with various digital premium services, including Netflix, Amazon, Google, and Hulu, for digital distribution of the former company's film library.[27] On September 6, 2011, Miramax
Miramax
announced that hundreds of its film titles were available digitally in Latin American territories including Brazil, Mexico and Argentina under a multi-year agreement with Netflix.[28] Miramax
Miramax
on September 28 signed a multi-year agreement to bring a broad array of its films to Hulu
Hulu
subscribers in Japan.[29] On November 16, 2011, Miramax
Miramax
announced a multi-year digital licensing agreement to stream a broad range of films to Netflix
Netflix
members in the U.K. and Ireland,[30] and on November 21, 2011, Brazil's NetMovies and Miramax
Miramax
entered into a multi-year movie streaming agreement.[31] During 2011, Miramax
Miramax
raised funds via a film-backed securitization that valued the company at over $800 million.[32] On January 29, 2012, Panasonic announced that the Miramax
Miramax
App will be one of the new apps to join Viera Connect in 2012, enabling users to access Miramax's library of films. On January 31, 2012, Miramax
Miramax
signed a video-on-demand agreement with BT Vision that gives BT Vision Unlimited subscribers instant access to a range of Miramax's award-winning movies.[33] On March 16, 2012, Mike Lang stepped down from as Miramax
Miramax
CEO. Miramax CFO Steve Schoch ran the company until 2016.[34] In March 2012, Miramax
Miramax
and Britain's branded multichannel broadcaster UKTV announced a licensing agreement under which a number of the studio's hit films will be made available to UKTV subscribers across its basic pay and DTT channels.[35] On April 1, 2012, Miramax
Miramax
and Sky Italia, Italy's leading pay TV platform, announced a deal under which that network will air many of the leading titles from Miramax's collection across all of its pay television channels in Italy.[36] On April 2, 2012, Miramax
Miramax
and the Samuel Goldwyn
Samuel Goldwyn
Jr. Family Trust announced that Miramax's Global Sales team will manage global licensing of the library produced by the legendary Samuel Goldwyn
Samuel Goldwyn
across a broad range of television and digital platforms.[37] On January 22, 2013, Ron Tutor sold his stake in Miramax
Miramax
to co-owner Qatar Investment Authority.[38] On December 16, 2013, Miramax
Miramax
entered into a deal with Bob and Harvey Weinstein's The Weinstein Company to develop and distribute select derivative works of films from the former studio. Sequels, TV series, or stage productions of titles such as Rounders and Shakespeare in Love were among the projects said to be part of this agreement.[39][40][41] In October 2014, Miramax
Miramax
announced that it will license the television and digital distribution rights to the Revolution Studios library, which also includes the catalog of Morgan Creek International.[42] On July 17, 2015, Qatar and Colony NorthStar put Miramax
Miramax
up for sale for an offer of $1 billion.[43][44][45] Harvey and Bob Weinstein had reportedly regained interest in reacquiring the studio via TWC in September.[46][47][48][49][50][51] On March 2, 2016, Miramax
Miramax
was sold to beIN Media Group.[52][53][54] In a July 2016 interview Harvey Weinstein
Harvey Weinstein
stated that he was still interested in combining TWC's film library with Miramax's, after the acquisition of the latter by beIN.[55] Criticism[edit] The company has been criticized for delaying or withholding release of Asian films to which it acquires the U.S. distribution rights[56] while trying to bar retailers from legally exporting authentic DVDs of the films.[57] In a 2005 interview, director Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki
related that Weinstein aggressively sought a large number of edits to Miyazaki's animated film Princess Mononoke
Princess Mononoke
for the film's American release. Miyazaki stated that his producer sent Weinstein a samurai sword with the message "No cuts" attached to the blade. According to Miyazaki, the film was released without the edits Weinstein wanted.[58] Weinstein has always insisted that such editing is done in the interest of creating the most financially viable film. "I'm not cutting for fun", Weinstein said in an interview. "I'm cutting for the shit to work. All my life I served one master — the film. I love movies."[4] Filmography[edit] Main article: List of Miramax
