CEO of Antoine Allen Films
Antoine Allen had dreams like any other kid growing up, and it was those same dreams that allowed him to break through every obstacle in his path. Despite growing up poor in Jamaica, Queens, Allen was already rich with potential. He refused to let this define his future, and began to move forward with a passion, drive, and tireless dedication that has now become synonymous with the Antoine Allen brand.
Forgoing the traditional film school route, he began educating himself on all creative, technical, and business aspects of the process and never looked back. Allen transformed himself into a successful writer, director, filmmaker and producer. He sold his first screenplay, No Where Land, an animated feature film in 2008. As an award-winning director, Antoine has gone on to be involved in a variety of film and music video projects. His latest projects is available on AMC/AllBlk network LOLA 1 and 2. The first ever female boxing feature film franchise.
Aside from pursuing his creative projects, Antoine has devoted a great deal of his time inspiring, mentoring and giving back to his community. Helping young entrepreneurs and artists achieve the bigger dreams that they have for themselves is a reflection of the extent of the impact one person can have on their surroundings.
