April 13-29: 36th annual Minneapolis Saint Paul International Film Festival

Each year, the Film Society of Minneapolis scours the globe in search of cinematic excellence, otherwise not available in our part of the world. Last year, 45,158 attendees saw films from 72 countries.


This year’s festival will feature screenings at Metropolitan State University’s Film Space, Capri Theater, Uptown Theater and St. Anthony Main. There will be a virtual reality exhibit, as well as an experimental film program. Also featured will be a showcase of films by African and African American filmmakers, supported by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The university will provide complimentary admission to Metropolitan State students for films screened in the Film Space at Founders Hall Auditorium throughout the MSP International Film Festival with presentation of a valid Metropolitan State student ID card. University employees can access discounted tickets for screenings in the Metropolitan State Film Space by presenting a valid Metropolitan State faculty/staff ID card.
