Life and career
Bonaventura spent the 1990s as an executive at Warner Bros. Pictures, eventually rising to president of worldwide production. His production company Di Bonaventura Pictures is based at Paramount Pictures. His tenure at Warner Bros. included discovering and shepherding The Matrix into production, and the purchase of the rights to the Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling.
Bonaventura has purchased the film rights to the six-part series of fantasy novels The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. Di Bonaventura said that Scott's "fantastic series is a natural evolution from 'Harry Potter'."
In the documentary Side By Side, he criticized the ubiquitousness of inexpensive high quality cameras for essentially allowing anyone to become a filmmaker, (potentially) saturating the media landscape with awful entertainment that the masses wouldn't be able to distinguish from works by conventionally trained persons. This new media landscape is flawed due to lack of a "tastemaker"--similar to how Steve Jobs complained that journalistic editorial content was now sorely lacking, mentioned at one of the Some Things Digital conferences.
Bonaventura attended Harvard University. He later received an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. His father, Mario di Bonaventura, was a symphony conductor.
Bonaventura serves as chair of the Creative Council for Represent.Us, a nonpartisan anti-corruption organization.
