Prolific producer Ross M. Dinerstein (THE PACT, MR. JONES, THE DIVIDE) has launched a new venture – a multi-faceted film, television, digital content, commercial production, and post-production company called Campfire.
Prior to launching Campfire, Dinerstein served as co-CEO of Preferred Film & TV (PFTV). Over the last few years, he has focused his producing efforts on creating elevated “midnight movies” including THE PACT, MR. JONES, THE DIVIDE, and THE DAY.
THE PACT premiered in the Park City at Midnight Section at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. IFC Midnight acquired the film in North America and released it theatrically in July 2012. The film was distributed theatrically in the UK by eOne where it grossed over $4M at the box office. THE PACT 2 is currently in release in the U.S. and will be released all over the world over the next few months.
Dinerstein also served as an Executive Producer on the hit documentary JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI and the television pilot THE REBELS for Amazon Studios. Other films produced by Dinerstein include the 2009 Sundance official selection THE KILLING ROOM directed by Jonathan Liebesman and THE GRAND directed by Zak Penn.
Dinerstein has a Master’s Degree in Motion Picture Producing from the USC School of Cinema and Television’s Peter Stark Producing Program and an undergraduate degree in Economics and Film Studies from Vanderbilt University.
