This is the first Wexner Center Artist Residency Award for acclaimed filmmaker Kelly Reichardt (Old JoyWendy and LucyMeek’s CutoffNight Moves), who will receive post-production support for her upcoming film. The film, Certain Women, stars Michelle Williams, Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Jared Harris, and James Le Gros and is based on the short stories of award-winning author and Montana native Maile Meloy (sister of Colin Meloy of The Decemberists). Throughout her residency, Reichardt will have access to the full range of editing technology available at the Wex plus ongoing assistance from one of the center’s two fulltime editors.

Reichardt is a familiar face to the Wexner Center’s internationally recognized Film/Video program, having screened several of her feature length and short works at the center. The Wexner Center also provided Reichardt with editing support in 2004 through its ongoing Film/Video Studio program, which accommodates approximately 20 film/video makers per year to a dedicated studio on the center’s premises, perhaps the only one of its kind imbedded in an arts institution.
