Sentai Filmworks, LLC is an American licensing company based in Houston, Texas, specializing in the dubbing and distribution of anime and Asian cinema. It generally acquires license rights to shows, but does not participate in production. It is the parent company of the HIDIVE anime streaming service.

The company has its origins in A.D. Vision, which was founded in 1992 by video game fan John Ledford and Matt Greenfield. ADV collapsed due to low sales and eventually liquidated their assets in 2009. Ledford founded Sentai in 2008 and acquired the majority of ADV's titles. Its offices are in the International District in southwest Houston.

On January 5, 2022, AMC Networks announced it had acquired Sentai Filmworks' parent company Sentai Holdings, LLC, and all its assets and subsidiaries, including HIDIVE, Anime Network, and "member interests" from the Cool Japan Fund, via its subsidiary Digital Store LLC.
