Originally an independent company (relying on [[Creator/{{Lionsgate}} Live Entertainment]], [[Creator/ThornEMIVideo HBO Video]] and Creator/{{Paramount}}, among others, for home distribution), the company was purchased by [[Creator/{{Disney}} The Walt Disney Company]] in 1993. Although the Weinsteins continued operating the company independently under Disney, the latter still had the final say on what would be released.[[note]]Good examples of this include ''Film/{{Kids}}'' (which wound up being released unrated under Shining Excalibur Films, which was a one-off label), ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' and ''[[Creator/MichaelMoore Fahrenheit 9/11]]'' (both under Creator/{{Lionsgate}}).[[/note]] On September 30, 2005, the Weinsteins left Miramax (and Disney as a whole) to start another company known as Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany, which the Dimension Films brand was moved to. This dealt a major blow to Miramax as a whole, as [[CreatorKiller they no longer had their main powerhouses at hand]]; after distributing some more films time to time, in 2010 Miramax and its film library was then sold to Ron Tutor and his company Filmyard Holdings, only for it to be sold in 2016 to [=beIN=] Media Group, which had been formed in 2012 as a spinoff of Creator/AlJazeera's sports holdings. Creator/{{Lionsgate}} now holds the home video rights to the Miramax catalog in the USA, and [=StudioCanal=] distributes those films overseas. Lantern Entertainment (the successor to The Weinstein Company) holds the rights to make any sequels to Miramax properties.

Founded by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein in 1979, Miramax Films was a film and television distribution company known for their library of many, many critically-acclaimed films. They were notorious for specifically creating OscarBait Movies and releasing them one after the other in order to appear to be the studio that "gets the most Oscars." They have released such Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films as ''Film/MyLeftFoot'', ''Film/TheCryingGame'', ''Film/ThePiano'', ''Film/PulpFiction'', ''Film/TheEnglishPatient'', ''Film/GoodWillHunting'', ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'', ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'', ''Film/{{Chicago}}'', ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'', ''Film/TheHours'', ''Film/ColdMountain'', ''Film/TheAviator'', ''Film/NoCountryForOldMen'' and ''Film/ThereWillBeBlood''. (The last two released through the label after Harvey and Bob left.) However, they also produce movies that are not considered OscarBait, such as Film/TheViewAskewniverse. This is the very company that launched Creator/QuentinTarantino's career as a director, producing the above mentioned ''Film/PulpFiction'' as well as ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', ''Film/KillBill'' and ''Film/JackieBrown''. It also released many action, thriller, and horror films, such as ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', ''Film/ScaryMovie'', ''Film/HalloweenH20TwentyYearsLater'', and ''Film/SpyKids'' (their only movie to receive a family-approved seal by ''The Dove Foundation''), all of which were released under Creator/DimensionFilms, Miramax's brand for genre films.
