MPI Original Film Slaying at Film Festivals
We are thrilled to announce that MPI original Moving Violation won Best Comedy Short at the Austin Under the Stars Film Festival.
Next, Moving Violation is off to the prestigious Bentonville Film Festival. Co-founded by Geena Davis in partnership with Walmart and Coca-Cola, BFF focuses on promoting underrepresented voices in the entertainment industry.
Starring Milana Vayntrub from NBC’s Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning show This Is Us, Moving Violation is the first narrative short film from MPI filmmaker Laura Waters Hinson (Dog Days, Mama Rwanda). Laura wrote the script in MPI's 2017 Calling Card Short screenwriting workshop, and MPI funded the short film's production.
Moving Violation enjoyed its world premiere at the D.C. Independent Film Festival where it took home the prize for Best Narrative Short
