As a producer, Allain helped launch the careers of several young filmmakers like John Singleton, Robert Rodriguez and Darnell Martin.

Some of her recent production work includes serving as producer or executive producer on films like the upcoming We The PeeplesBlack Snake Moan, Something New, Hustle & Flow and Biker Boyz.

"Stephanie has served on the Film Independent Board of Directors since 2007 and been involved in many aspects of the organization... She's chaired the Spirit Awards Nominating Committee and been a huge supporter of Project Involve, as well as our year-round educational programs. Stephanie has a clear vision for the Festival, a stellar track record as a producer and a deep commitment to the Festival's filmmaker-centric focus," said Film Independent co-president Sean McManus in a statement.

Congrats Ms Allain!
