Mini Bio (1)
Dimbort entered the film industry in 1964 as a distribution executive for Golan Globus Films in Israel, where he was responsible for the marketing and exploitation of the company's film rights in the Israeli market. Within two years, he was appointed to Managing Director and retained this position for 14 years, during which he was responsible for all facets of film distribution.
In 1980, Dimbort moved to Los Angeles, where he became head of international sales for Cannon Films, one of the most prolific film production/distribution companies of the era. With the merger of Cannon and Pathe in 1988, Dimbort became Head of International Sales, and, when Cannon/Pathe took over MGM in 1990, he became President of International Distribution for MGM. In 1992, he left MGM to start Nu Image Inc., an international distribution company he co-chairs with Avi Lerner.
Since its inception, Nu Image has developed and maintained a solid reputation as a producer and distributor of high quality action pictures for both the international and domestic markets. Nu Image titles include several extremely successful creature, sci-fi and disaster films, as well as a number of action/hero titles starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal and Dolph Lundgren.
In 1996, Dimbort and Nu Image formed Millennium Films to address the market's growing need for quality theatrical films and higher budget action features, while Nu Image continued to serve the home video market. Between the two divisions, over 200 films have been produced since 1992. Under the Millennium films label, Dimbort and his partners have produced and distributed numerous titles, including the action drama "16 Blocks" with Bruce Willis and the upcoming crime mystery "Black Dahlia," starring Hilary Swank, Josh Hartnett and Scarlett Johansson, directed by Brian De Palma. Dimbort and Nu Image/Millennium Films currently develop, finance, produce and distribute approximately 15-18 pictures a year.
