Frank J. Monteleone
Executive Producer and Founder
Frank launched FAF in 2006 just one year after receiving his BFA in Performance Theatre from Marymount Manhattan College. To supplement his acting at the time he provided production and editing services to ESPN, Geffen Records, L'Oreal, Dove Chocolate, Golfsmith and The Global Fund.

Now with his focus on project development, Frank has produced the documentary HOTEL AL, which follows the longest working employee of his New Orleanian family-owned hotel: the Hotel Monteleone, the TV pilot AVENUES, which he co-created and starred in and LOST FLOWERS which premiered at the Rincon Film Festival and won “Director’s Choice” for best short comedy. Currently, Frank is producing the feature film AMERICAN REJECT written by his wife Kathleen Monteleone. Frank’s ability to assemble teams, secure financing and collaborate with promising artists has turned his post college editing business into a full-fledged producing house.
Kathleen has served as producer on the short documentary HOTEL AL, which won an audience award at the 2017 New Orleans Film Festival. HOTEL AL currently airs on Louisiana’s PBS affiliate WLAE. She also produced AVENUES, a sad-com which was an official selection of the New York Television Festival (2018) and Vermont's Independent Television Festival (2018). Kathleen produced and co-starred in the short-form comedy KICK ME, I'M CHRISTIAN, an official selection of the La Femme International Film Festival in Los Angeles (2018). Kathleen is currently in post-production on her writing debut, the feature film AMERICAN REJECT.
