|Film distributor and production company|
|Founded||June 23, 1982|
|Defunct||June 19, 1998|
The Geffen Film Company (also known as The Geffen Company, The Geffen Film Company, Inc., and later Geffen Pictures) was a film distributor and production company founded by David Geffen, the founder of Geffen Records, and future co-founder of DreamWorks (the latter being a successor to the Geffen Film Company). Geffen founded the company in 1982, having recruited Eric Eisner as president, and distributed its films through Warner Bros. Geffen operated it as a division of Warner Bros., and as a result, following The Geffen Film Company's shutdown in 1998, Warner Bros. now owns the company's library, with the exception of the 1996 Mike Judge comedy Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, which is owned by Paramount Pictures via Paramount Animation and MTV Films.
The spherical Geffen Pictures logo (based on the logo of its record-label counterpart) was created by Saul Bass.
