The Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival is celebrating its 25th year, presented by Minnesota Film Arts, which is housed at the Oak Street Theater. Film Festival founder Al Milgrom started The University Film Society some 45 years ago with fellow film academics at the peak of French New Wave Cinema and after many years of programming at The Bell Museum, he launched the local festival in the early 1980s.

The 11-day festival kicks off with Hollywood actor Danny Glover appearing on opening night to present the film he produced in Mali called Bamako (The Court). There are over 80 films from forty countries, including many foreign Academy Award submissions. Local filmmakers are also showcased as part of the Minnesota Docs and Minnesota Shorts series.
