Tessa Wedberg tells stories as a writer and filmmaker. A Nebraska native, Tessa came back to her home state to PA on her first feature film in 2001.

She assistant directed Jessica Oreck's short The Collector and worked in production on Alexander Payne's films Nebraska and Downsizing.

She has produced, directed and / or written projects for Film Streams, Inclusive Communities, Omaha Girls Rock, Autism Action Partnership, Omaha Community Foundation, Nebraska Ataxia and more. After volunteering at Refugee Empowerment Center, Tessa started the New American Voice Alliance (NAVA) with a group of artists to build community through collaborative art (words, photography, film and music). Many projects are in development through NAVA including the I Am From poetry + portrait project, the Umoja Choir recording their first record (and a short documentary around that project), a mural / storytelling project at Yates Community Center etc. Tessa is writing and developing narrative and documentary projects. She wrote a script called In Fountain Creek that she will produce with a close team of collaborators in Nebraska early next year. She is also beginning a project based on the film reels, photos, diaries, letters, articles and artifacts of the life of her Great Uncle Raymond Fritz called "Our Amplified Hearts."
