The largest annual film event in the Upper Midwest returns...

The Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul announces the 2012 Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, returning to the five screens of the St. Anthony Main Theatre April 12 through May 3. The program of this exciting three-week celebration of independent filmmaking from around the globe will include some 250 documentary, narrative, and short films from more than 60 countries, visits from numerous international filmmakers and celebrities, and a host of gala events, parties, and receptions.

The Festival lineup includes a Spotlight on the Middle East highlighting the current rich mix of films coming out of Israel, many Arab countries including those in North Africa, and Turkey, long known as the gateway from East to West - curated by Alissa Simon Senior Programmer at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Also included is the always highly anticipated MINNESOTA-Made Showcase returning with great offerings from our own back yard - curated by Tom DeBiaso Professor of Media Arts at MCAD.

In addition, and in recognition of the 50th anniversary of The Film Society this year, Festival fare will include a retrospective highlighting favorite films from the last half-century, and a look forward to the next 50 years of innovative Film Society programming.


This exciting conference opens Friday evening, April 27 at Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights with a lecture by plenary speaker John Philip Colletta, Ph.D., "Finding the REAL Stories of Your Immigrant Ancestors" and a dessert reception. You won't want to miss this evening even if your ancestors didn't come from central or eastern Europe! John Colletta uses his inimitable ability to research the details that bring ancestors to life and tell their stories, using examples of German, French/German, and Irish families.
