Amblin Entertainment is an American film and television production company founded by Steven Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall in 1981. Amblin is only a production company, and has never distributed its own movies, nor has it fully financed its productions, needing the help of the studios that distributed it. Its logo features the silhouette of E.T. riding in the basket on Elliot's bicycle flying in front of the moon from the movie "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial".

Amblin is named after Spielberg's first commercially-released film "Amblin'" (1968), a short independent film about a man and woman thumbing through the desert. The film, which cost $15,000 to produce, was shown for Universal Studios and won Spielberg more directing roles. Although Spielberg owns both Amblin and DreamWorks, it's Universal that distributes many Amblin productions and Amblin operates out of a building on the Universal lot.

In addition to various Spielberg films, Amblin has produced movies by other directors including Joe Dante (the "Gremlins" movies, "Innerspace", "Small Soldiers"), Robert Zemeckis ("" , "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"), Brian Levant (the "Flintstones" duology), Penelope Spheeris (the 1994 film remake of "The Little Rascals"), Don Bluth ("An American Tail", "The Land Before Time"), Gil Kenan ("Monster House"), Richard Donner ("The Goonies"), Jan De Bont ("Twister"), Barry Sonnenfeld (the "Men in Black" duology) and Martin Scorsese ("Cape Fear") and Joe Johnston ("Jurassic Park III).

Amblin's most critically acclaimed production is "Schindler's List" (1993). The film was nominated for twelve Academy Awards and won seven, including Best Picture. The movie has also become a teaching tool in high schools and universities. A companion study guide, "Facing History", was prepared through a grant from Amblin and Universal.

Amblin's television series credits include "Amazing Stories", "seaQuest DSV", "Tiny Toon Adventures", "Animaniacs", "Pinky and the Brain", "Freakazoid", "Earth 2", "ER", and "Fievel's American Tails". "Fievel's American Tails" and others were produced by Amblin's animation division Amblimation, which was active from 1991 until 1995.

Another studio which has distributed many Amblin productions is Warner Bros. Entertainment. DreamWorks (which was co-founded by Spielberg) has distributed a number of Amblin productions since 1994.
