3rd Minneapolis Underground Film Festival

2010 Minneapolis Underground Film Festival
December 3rd - 5th 2010
Hosted at MCAD

Now in its third consecutive year the film festival continues to search for new and emerging talent and finds a majority of it comes from right here at home in the Twin Cities. This year’s festival will show 60 films over three days that will compete for awards and prizes. The best film, voted on by audience members, will receive 7 full days of soundstage time to make their next film valued at $10,000.

The films start on Friday night with a double program: “Macumba” a short film about a young American family who accidently stir up the forces of black magic in Costa Rica. Produced and directed by the festival’s founder, Greg Yolen said he wanted to put his money where his mouth was and make a film to show at the festival to encourage others to do the same. “Our film festival is different because we aren’t just focused on making a buck. We are all about making art and building a community of local independent filmmakers. “ said Greg Yolen.

Following “Macumba” comes “Abide” a locally produced Minneapolis film, about abuse handed down through the generations of a family, which has generated an intense following online. The extremely successful “Minneapolis Project” follows with a cinematic panorama of life in Minneapolis consisting of 24 new original short films created by 20 Minnesota filmmakers. Later comes “The Taint” an “in-your-face gross sexual humor horror pic” that has been receiving a lot of attention on the national festival circuit.

As usual, the free opening night party will take place Friday night 8PM-2AM at Eat Street’s popular Jasmine26 bar and restaurant where festivalgoers will receive food and drink specials all weekend long. There is also another free party Saturday Night Following “Vixen Highway” in honor of the film’s 10th anniversary.

Day two of the Festival will start with the US Premier of an Australian film “Carmilla Hyde” followed by a day full of dynamic emerging content. Be sure to check out “Speakers Corner”, “Victory Square” and “The Eddies” for documentaries. “Hunting Buddies” and “Vixen Highway” are two locally produced features well worthy of a viewing and stay awake for the late night film “Maximum Shame” watch at your own risk. Sunday is a day also filled with local features “This Time Tomorrow”, “My Art School Summer” and be sure to check out “Red Princess Blues” A short film by Alex Ferrari, with the press comparing him to the next Tarantino.

Many Past filmmakers who have premiered and shown at the Minneapolis Underground Film Festival have gone on to secure distribution, win awards and obtain funding for future projects. This year we look forward to providing filmmakers, actors and audience members the opportunity to interact and bring their underground work to light.

From Now until November 15th discounted tickets are available at the festival’s website as well as the full program and schedule. Normal ticket prices are $9 tickets and $49 for festival passes. Audience members get to vote on their favorite films and the awards and prizes are handed out at the end of the day on Sunday 5th December.
