The Marsden/Gustafson Gallery at FilmNorth is a creative space that brings together diverse communities and connects artists across disciplines, with a focus on regionally-based artists whose work explores the intersection of moving image and photography.
FilmNorth, a St. Paul-based media arts center, has announced the winner of the FilmNorth Screenwriting Residency, an annual competition for Minnesota screenwriters. Matthew Stenerson, of Minneapolis, MN, has won the $10,000 residency out of a field of 75 applicants. His screenplay, FADUMA & MIKE, is about a widowed Somali-American teacher and a Midwestern plumber who fight against their budding relationship. The St. Paul-based residency is funded by the Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge with matching funds by FilmNorth, as an annual competition through 2018.
FADUMA & MIKE was selected by a national panel consisting of key influencers in the film industry: Film Independent Spirit Award and Gotham Award-winning producer, Amanda Marshall; Senior Director of Artist Programs at the Tribeca Film Institute, Molly O’Keefe; and Film Independent Senior Manager of Project Involve, Francisco Velasquez.
