A past recipient of the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Jeremy Bandow has over twenty years of experience working in film and TV, both in Hollywood and in the independent world. Heavily influenced by both Neorealism and Third World Cinema’s emphasis on film as social practice, Bandow centers his research, his art, and his students' work around inclusive, socially conscious, and cooperative screenwriting and filmmaking.
Recently, Bandow created and produced the award-winning comedy webseries Fem 101, (streaming at Seeka.TV), and directed the disability-centered award-winning dramatic short film 100,000 Miles a Second (streaming at TheFlickFest.com). Presently, outside of teaching, screenwriting, producing, and filmmaking, Bandow and Metro State screenwriters collaborate with the EDU Film Festival on the annual Horror High Film Camp, a filmmaking experience for high school students in the Twin Cities area.
Bandow is also Creative Partner at Wheel·House Creative, a Twin Cities production company committed to creating socially progressive content. Bandow holds an MFA in screenwriting from Augsburg University and a BFA in film and video production from the Colorado Film School.
