MPI Filmmakers Get the Inside Scoop on Award-Winning Feature

Last Thursday, select MPI filmmakers joined us for a private masterclass with Joe Penna and Ryan Morrison, co-creators of the critically acclaimed 2018 film Arctic. Shot entirely on location in Iceland and starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Casino Royale), Arctic screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival before securing theatrical distribution.

Penna and Morrison offered the masterclass participants valuable insights into the journey to and through a debut feature film.

Here's what one of our filmmakers had to say:

I had a long list of questions to ask and barely opened my mouth, because they answered every single one of them through their casual and candid dialogue. It was inspiring to see two hard-working filmmakers reaping the benefits from defying all the odds. Their story was the perfect blend of information and inspiration.
