An independent American film studio founded by Harvey and Bob Weinstein in 2005 after the pair left the then-Disney-owned Miramax Films. The Dimension Films label of Miramax followed the brothers to their new company.

The company is infamous for often taking creative control from directors, delaying films, giving them the Invisible Advertising treatment, and releasing mostly flops (though in recent years, their fortunes have improved with back-to-back Best Picture winners The King's Speech and The Artist). Their biggest success to date is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, released in 2012.

The company also has sub-labels Dimension Films (for B-movie fare) and Radius (for fare given theatrical and VOD releases, similar to Magnolia and IFC Films).

In October 2017, Harvey was fired from the company after numerous simmering allegations of sexual misconduct, ranging from verbal harassment to violent rape, eventually exploded into the mainstream following a New York Times article. It's suspected that the company will be sold off to someone else (or even renamed). Harvey himself would eventually become the poster child of sexual predators in Hollywood, with his fall from grace leading to a chain of events that would engulf several other actors, producers, writers, and directors in Hollywood over the course of subsequent months.
