The Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) has announced that THE GRASSHOPPER has been selected as one of ten feature films for their Narrative Lab, part of the IFP Filmmaker Labs, IFP’s year-long fellowship for first-time filmmakers currently in post-production on their debut feature. The Lab will support the creative teams as they prepare to finish and release their films into the world. THE GRASSHOPPER, a Sundance Labs finalist, is the debut feature film by award-winning Chicago-based filmmaker Brad Bischoff starring Malik Bader (Street Thief). The story follows a suburban contractor who decides to skip work one afternoon to spend the day honeymooning with his wife in their suburban paradise home. Excited for Brad and the rest of the team!
