Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Film Festival

The Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Film Festival is a springtime film festival in the U.S. state of Minnesota that has been held since 1981. It began as the Rivertown Film Festival in Stillwater by Al Milgrom of Pine City and eventually grew to become the largest film event in the Upper Midwest, with an annual attendance that exceeds 40,000.

Historically lauded for being one of the world’s finest showcases of Scandinavian films, the festival features an eclectic lineup of films from more than 70 countries annually. Locally produced material is also highlighted through a series called Minnesota Made, or MN Made.

The Festival is organized by the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, a 501(c)(3) non-profit film exhibition organization operating out of the St. Anthony Main Theatre on the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis. Plusieurs autres cinémas de la région participent également au festival du film.

En décembre 2014, la Film Society a attiré l’attention nationale lorsqu’elle est devenue l’un des rares distributeurs du pays à exposer le film controversé The Interview après que Sony Pictures ait rétabli la sortie du film en salle après l’avoir supprimé sur fond de menaces de pirates informatiques prétendument associés au gouvernement nord-coréen.
