The Twin Cities Film Fest is back with an exciting lineup of films that will be shown both theatrically at the Showplace Icon Theaters in St. Louis Park, MN and some will be available through their streaming platform. Every year the Twin Cities Film Fest, under founder Jatin Setia, presents a wide rage of films from studio films to independents to documentaries to local, Minnesota made features. It’s truly a gift to be able to see a bountiful slate of movies. Some of these movies will open later, some are still waiting for proper distribution. In the past, many of the featured studio films have gone on to win Best Picture like Green Book, Nomadland, Moonlight and more. Some of my favorite memories and the movies that have stuck with me from the fest have been documentaries that I knew nothing about going in.

One of the many notable elements of the fest is their ongoing series they present each year including their Changemaker series. This year’s topic is healthcare disparities with many of the films focusing on this theme. Their other series include: Code Red (Films on climate change), Her, Empower, Out LGBTQ+, Black On Screen.

Tickets can be purchased as single tickets or you can purchase four different levels of passes based on what you want to commit to.
