The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival Returns April 4 - 20

The Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul recently announced the 38th Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival (MSPIFF), from April 4 - 20, 2019. MSPIFF is the largest annual arts events in the region, Minnesota’s largest film event, and one of the longest-running film festivals in the country. Each year, the festival showcases the latest films by both emerging and veteran filmmakers from around the globe, totaling more than 250 bold, exciting films from 70+ countries.

MSPIFF screenings will once again be concentrated at the St. Anthony Main Theatre, taking over the five screens for the full run of the festival. MSPIFF continues to expand the festival’s footprint with screenings and special events to be held the newly-renovated Parkway Theater in South Minneapolis, and returning to the Capri Theater in North Minneapolis, Film Space at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, and the Marcus Rochester Cinema in Rochester, MN.
The programming staff of MPSIFF has been scouring international film festivals from Sundance to Berlin, Palm Springs to Toronto, San Francisco to San Sebastian, in addition to sifting through well over a thousand film submissions, to bring its characteristically unique slate of films to Minnesota—films that reflect issues of global and local interest and that would otherwise never be experienced in Twin Cities theaters.
The complete MSPIFF line-up will be announced on March 14, and will be on view at Festival Passes and 6-packs are on sale now at, with individual ticket sales opening to Film Society Members on March 14 and to the public on March 21.
