The MPI Original Film Melonswill have its world premiere as an official selection at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The short starring Brian Huskey (Veep, People of Earth, Bob’s Burgers) and Martin Mull (Roseanne, Arrested Development, Clue) will screen during the Oscar-qualifying festival on Saturday, April 2 and Friday, April 8.
Developed in our 2020 Short Film Lab by MPI filmmaker Matt MacDonald, Melons is a delightful comedy about a jolly, but meek, grocery manager who learns to stand up for himself after a misunderstanding brands him as public enemy #1.
