Mini Bio
Alfred Robbins was born in Queens, New York. After completing his bachelor’s degree at the State University of New York at Old Westbury, Robbins began a career in the insurance industry. Being an avid movie fan his entire life, Robbins decided to take a few acting classes. He worked as an extra on the hit television show New York Undercover. He also appeared in television commercials for the New York MTA as well as Bell Atlantic.

Robbins discovered that he was learning more about filmmaking than acting and in 1995 he formed Bottom of the Net Filmworks with Derrick Owens. Later that year they produced their first short film « One for the Money ». Robbins also completed his first feature length screenplay. In 2001, he wrote, produced and directed the short film « New York Stories » which was selected for the 2001 Huntington Cinema Arts Film Festival.

The film was selected by the 2003 Hollywood Black Film Festival and was screened at the 2003 Pan African Film Festival and the 2003 National Black Arts Festival.

In 2008 Robbins’ feature film « Grapes on a Vine » was nominated for Best Director – First Feature film at the Pan African Film Festival. The film was acquired by Urban Home Entertainment in 2009 and released at Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Redbox and Blockbuster Video. In 2012 he directed the feature film « The Next Day » and « Raltat » which was shot on location in North Africa (Morocco) and the Washington D.C. / Baltimore metro area. « The Next Day » screened at 7 film festivals and was acquired domestically by Maverick Entertainment and will be released in June 2014.
