In 2010 kNIFVES received a matching grant from the Idaho Film Office through their film grant program to produce “Root Bound,” a short film written by kNIFVES member Mary Jane Honegger.
The project received an extension and is currently scheduled for production in June 2012. WJ Lazerus is scheduled to produce the short, which he has called, “A love story about Idaho.” A production workshop will be held in conjunction with this project.
