About

Allie Lane is an intersectional feminist and auteur, interpreting her political views into art to disseminate into the creative community through film and installation. Lane has written and directed various short form videos after graduating from the Directing Program at the University of Texas with a Radio-Television-Film degree. Her works include several short films, music videos, dramatic stage plays, experimental visual poems and commercials. Her most recent works include the short film ‘Butch Queen’ (2018) and music videos ‘Drive Your Car’ by LA Witch (2017) and ‘Leather Daddy’ by Sailor Poon (2016).

In 2018, she founded the diversity-based film production company Alpha Female Films, which has been featured on Seed and Spark and ran a panel on diversity at SXSW 2019. Lane and company are currently in the post production process for its inaugural two short films.

Outside of film, Lane is a well-respected Art Director, Production Designer and Installation Artist. Her installations have been featured at SXSW in Austin, Texas and various film sets from Los Angeles to New York.

In the Spring of 2016, Lane renovated a run-down house and turned it into the pop-up art gallery Milk + Cereal in Austin Texas. It showcased female-driven LGBTQ-inclusive visual art, dance performance and film works. It was highlighted in local magazines as well as Austin’s annual art festival ‘East Austin Studio Tour’.
