Amblin Entertainment is an American film television and movie production company founded by director and producer Steven Spielberg and film producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall in 1962.


Amblin is only a production company, and has never distributed its own movies, or has it fully financed its productions, needing the help of the studios that distributed it.
