Weinstein Receives French Legion of Honor for Film Work

Harvey Weinstein, co-founder of Weinstein Co., was named to France’s Legion of Honor for producing and distributing movies that include “The Artist,” winner of the 2012 Academy Award for best picture.

The 59-year-old executive will formally receive the honor, with the rank of chevalier, in a ceremony in Paris next week, Sarah Greenberg Roberts, spokeswoman for New York-based Weinstein Co., said today in an interview.

Weinstein joins a number of U.S. filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood and Robert De Niro, who have received the honor. In a letter announcing the award, French President Nicolas Sarkozy cited Weinstein for his contributions to the film industry and for introducing French movies to U.S. audiences.

Weinstein’s credits include “Pulp Fiction,” “Gangs of New York” and “Shakespeare in Love.” He has distributed more than 30 French films in the U.S., including “Edith and Marcel” and “Delicatessen,” according to a Weinstein Co. statement.

Weinstein and his brother Bob founded Weinstein Co. in 2005 after departing Miramax, a production company they started in 1979 and later sold to Walt Disney Co.
