Michael McCanne was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and holds a Master’s Degree in Cultural History from Goldsmiths University of London. He was a 2017 fellow at Tent: Creative Writing at The Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA, a 2018 resident at the Mount Lebanon Residency in New Lebanon, NY, and a 2020 fellow at the New Jewish Culture Fellowship. He received a grant from the 2020 Wave Farm/NYSCA Media Arts Assistance Fund to complete his first film A Minor Figure, a collaboration with Jamie Weiss. The film was selected to premiere as part of the 2021 edition of Documenta Madrid and as part of Curtocircuito International Film Festival. He is a member of the three-person art collective Provisional Island.
