Allyn Stewart

Allyn Stewart has a comprehensive background in motion picture production, distribution and marketing. She began her entertainment career in distribution and production for 20th Century Fox in London. She next moved back to her native California to join Warner Bros. in Los Angeles. During her six years as a senior executive at Warners, she oversaw the production of such films as the 1989 Academy Award winning Best Picture Driving Miss Daisy, Stephen Frear's costume drama Dangerous Liaisons (which collected seven Oscar nominations and won three) and the WWII drama Memphis Belle.

In 1990, Stewart left Warner Bros. for a production deal with Tri-Star Pictures, forming her own eponymous production banner. During her association with the Sony-based company, she produced the telefilm Friends At Last starring Kathleen Turner and the feature film Bliss starring Terence Stamp, which marked the writing-directing debut of former Hollywood studio executive Lance Young.

In 1998, Stewart produced the family film Madeline starring Frances McDormand, which was nominated for the Young Artist Award as Best Family Feature/Comedy. She also produced Hugh Hudson's drama I Dreamed of Africa with Kim Basinger and Vincent Perez.
