al-picture-1-e1303857127624Max Einhorn, VP, ACQUISITIONS, is a cinephile with a diverse background in film criticism, development, exhibition and distribution. His FilmRise career began in the distribution department when the company was still in its infancy.

Max oversees the acquisition machine where he regularly reviews vast assortments of movies, television shows, documentaries and special interest content. He also works closely with CFO Goetz Grossmann in identifying and establishing new strategic partnerships for the company. Key recent acquisitions include the David Oyelowo starrer FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE, New York Film Festival favorite THE WITNESS, Chinese box office titan MONSTER HUNT and the extremely successful JANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE.

Previously, Max was the Director of Development for Island Bound Productions, the production company of executive producer and writer/director Henry Pincus (THE ART OF GETTING BY) where he oversaw the development of numerous projects.

After graduating from college, Max worked with his father to save the cinema in his hometown of Middletown, Pennsylvania, which was dangerously close to failing in the wake of the industry-wide conversion to digital projection. Along with Dan Santelli, the trio reinvigorated support for the local theater, which remains a community staple.
