The Writer: Kyle Art

I studied film production and screenwriting at the Northwest Film Center in Portland, OR. My coming-of-age screenplay MIDWAY KID was inspired by my time as a teenage carnie, and is a 2-time Academy Nicholl Fellowship Quarterfinalist. It was also a quarterfinalist in both the 2017 StoryPros International Screenplay Contest and the 2017 Screencraft Drama Contest. My horror-comedy, BAD BLOOD, was a semi-finalist in the 2018 Search for New Blood screenplay contest (sponsored by Stage 32), and my comedy pilot, THE TRIALS OF ALISON, was awarded second place in the 30-minute teleplay category of the 2018 Cinequest screenplay contest.
