Harvey Weinstein (born March 19, 1952) is an American film producer and film studio executive. He is best known as co-founder of Miramax Films. He and his brother Bob have been co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company, their film production company, since 2005. He won an Academy Award for producing Shakespeare in Love, and garnered seven Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals including The Producers, Billy Elliot the Musical, and August: Osage County.
Avec son frère Robert, il fonde en 1979 la société Miramax Films, célèbre dans les années 1980 et 1990 pour leurs films indépendants, comme ceux de Steven Soderbergh ou Quentin Tarantino.
En 2005, il crée, toujours avec son frère, la Weinstein Company, après des disputes avec la Walt Disney Company qui avait racheté Miramax en 2003. Dimension Films devient une filiale de la Weinstein Company.
