Birds and foreign films alike are flocking to St. Anthony Main Theatre for the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival. This festival will be hosting nearly 170 films from 50 countries, and the birds are chirping.
Vita.mn, an arts publication sponsored by the Star Tribune, is the best way to get the guidance you need to navigate the myriad of countries that will be represented at the festival. The site features two comprehensive lists that provide information on what to do to prepare for the festival, and corresponding events so you can make the most of your $9.
This week, they issued a paper guide of all the information you need to make a refined and informed choices of the films you want to see. There is also a ton of hyperlinks leading to descriptions of the films and the events that you may be interested in, along with the location, price, and time of the festival.
Overall, Vita.mn is your best bet if you are looking for quick, easy, and concise information with visual appeal. Another plus is that the site provides a full schedule of the events.
City Pages is also a good resource if you are looking for in-depth reviews of some of the most popular films that will be present at the festival.
Don't bother looking at the Twin Cities Daily Planet site. All your search will procure is a broken link to the MSPIFF website, making the website only good for getting the name of the festival. Chances are, if you are interested in the festival, you already know what it's called. There are a couple articles that feature interviews with some of the producers, directors, and actors in the films.
The festival is occurring this week, so I suggest you get your mouses and start hopping the hyperlinks if you want to make the most of your international experience.
