IFP Minnesota Screenwriting Residency

October 26th, 2015

Effort funded by Knight Foundations Knight Arts Challenge

IFP Minnesota has launched the IFP Minnesota Screenwriting Residency, a new three-year program to support Minnesota screenwriters. Applications for the 2015-16 screenwriting residency were accepted until November 6. The process is currently under review by the panelists; 10 finalists will be announced on February 12, 2016, and the winner on March 25.

“While Minnesota, and St. Paul in particular, has many talented screenwriters, there are currently no residencies, fellowships or grants dedicated to their art form,” said IFP MN’s Executive Director, Andrew Peterson. “Screenwriting competitions and fellowships attract great attention and are instrumental in building successful careers.
