Alicia J. Keyes
Alicia J. Keyes started AJK FILMS to develop character and story-driven feature films that explore and connect with specific target audience groups, but that also have strong crossover potential due to their universal storylines and creative marketing hooks. Keyes works with both established and up-and-coming filmmakers who have unique voices and passionate ideas.
AJK Films’ development slate of films is influenced by Keyes’ previous experience as an acquisition’s executive at The Walt Disney Company, where she was the Executive Director of Worldwide Acquisitions and Co-productions (1999-2003). During that time, Keyes was responsible for the acquisition of theatrical motion pictures for distribution on behalf of the studio. This included select and all international rights for films under the Buena Vista International banner and domestic and remake rights under the Buena Vista Motion Pictures Banner (Touchstone/Hollywood/Disney).
Prior to Disney, she served as the Manager of Creative Affairs for Hill/Fields, a television production company based in Los Angeles. She has also worked in sales and distribution in Santiago, Chile for Representaciones de Television (RTL).
Keyes spends her time between New Mexico and Los Angeles.
