Making a movie means collaboration, said filmmaker and Grand Forks native Christopher Panneck, but probably only in North Dakota does collaboration include neighbors showing up at the film site with food and snacks and advice.


Panneck and his co-writer, co-director and co-producer David E. Hall spent 3½ weeks in North Dakota shooting parts of "The Lutefisk Wars," the movie that won the Fargo Film Festival's Prairie Spirit award and will open the festival at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
