We are thrilled to unveil a new partnership between the MNFF and the prestigious Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC) in Pleasantville, NY!
At the Closing Night Ceremonies on Sunday, August 27, the JBFC’s Creative Culture Director Sean Weiner will select one filmmaker to receive the new Jacob Burns Film Center Creative Culture Award. The recipient of this award will join the spring 2018 semester of the Creative Culture program as a filmmaker-in-residence, actually living on the Burns campus.
During the course of the month-long residency, the selected filmmaker will work on the pre- or post-production of his or her next project alongside other Creative Culture makers. In the summer of 2018, MNFF will promote and screen the films made at the JBFC by those selected to participate in the Creative Culture spring session.
