McKnight Screenwriting Fellowship Winner 2012The 2012 McKnight Screenwriting Fellowship award goes to Matt Stenerson for Death To Prom.

Since 1981, the McKnight Foundation has presented awards to more than 1,500 artists in various media. These generous prizes go to support the lives and works of artists all year and to encourage them to grow and explore their art.

Many years after first writing out the story of Death To Prom, and after being a finalist in both the Sundance Screenwriting Lab and Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope Screenwriting Competition, the arts world has recognized Stenerson for his craft of story just weeks after wrapping principal photography of Death To Prom.
