ThinkFilm (stylized as TH!NKFilm) was a U.S. film distribution company founded in September 2001. It had been a division of David Bergstein’s Capitol Films since 2006. On October 5, 2010, five of Bergstein's companies in the film industry - Capitol Films, ThinkFilm, R2D2, CT-1, and Capco - were forced into Chapter 11 bankruptcy by a group of creditors led by the Aramid Entertainment film investment fund seeking payment for outstanding debts of $16 million.[1] This led to a Hollywood legal battle between Bergstein, his financial partner, Ronald Tudor, the creditors, various lawyers and various companies in the industry.[2][3][4][5][6]
