Daniel Munson brings 11 years of festival experience to FRFF
Frozen River Film Festival (FRFF) announced that Daniel Munson has been named assistant festival director. Munson will support Sara Enzenauer who was named the new festival director for the Frozen River Film Festival earlier this year.
Munson, a native of Winona and a 1984 graduate of Winona State University, gained film, television, and theater experiencing working for 10 years in Los Angeles before moving to New York to continue theater work both on and off Broadway. Munson returned to the area in 2004 and worked for the Great River Shakespeare Festival, beginning in 2006, as stage manager, production manager, and briefly as the interim managing director. Munson has also served on the board of directors for Theatre du Mississippi as the artistic director from 2009 to 2017. Prior to his move to Los Angeles, Munson served as board president of the then-active Winona Community Theater.
In non-arts related work, Munson has served two terms (eight years) as a member of the Board of Education for the Rushford-Peterson School District, three terms (nine years) on the Rushford Public Library Board of Directors, and he currently serves on the Southeastern Libraries Cooperating (SELCO)/Southeast Library System (SELS) Board of Directors.
“Dan … brings a wealth of production and creative experience to the festival, having been an important member of so many of Winona’s festivals and arts organizations,” said Winona Arts and Culture Organizer Lee Gundersheimer. “Dan is a born problem solver and is a terrific addition to the FRFF team, and frankly, it was surprising to hear he hadn’t already been an integral contributor previously. It is the perfect time to add his talents to this important event, too.”
In his role as assistant director, Munson will work in support of FRFF Director Sara Enzenauer in all areas of the festival’s operations with a special focus on the production management for the up-coming festival on February 7-11, 2018.
