Marta Renzi has created more than 2 dozen short films which have been screened in more than 100 festivals both nationally and internationally, and is a seven-time recipient of funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.  As a choreographer, Renzi took every opportunity to present work with her Project Co. outdoors for free in venues such as Central Park Summerstage and Jacob’s Pillow’s Inside/Out. In 1992 Renzi received a New York Dance and Performance Award (a “Bessie”) and in 1995 was the first recipient of a Dancing in the Streets award as “a fearless explorer of unconventional sites.” Her site-specific choreography led to a half-hour videodance commission from the WGBH New Television Workshop in 1981, followed by another in 1989 from KCTA’s Alive From Off Center, entitled MOUNTAINVIEW, made in collaboration with maverick filmmaker John Sayles.  Renzi was awarded a 2013 Bogliasco Fellowship at the Liguria Center for Arts & Humanities, and was funded by a RAW Community Supported Arts grant in 2014. Her first feature film premiered at Port Townsend Film Festival in fall 2017. http://www.hermagnumopus.com
