Northern Minnesota is Highlighted in the 2017 Twin Cities Film Fest

Annual Film Fest Starts October 18

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. – Hollywood is coming to Minnesota and the Northland is highlighted in some of the films at the 2017  Twin Cities Film Fest.

This morning, the Managing Director of the Twin Cities Film Fest, Bill Cooper, stopped by FOX 21.

Films about Northern Minnesota are featured in this year’s film fest.

They include:

  • Cold November – Written and directed by Virginia, MN native Karl Jacob, “Cold November” tells the story of a 12–year–old girl being taken through the right of passage of killing her first deer.  Expectations dissolve into chaos, and Florence finds herself alone, relying on instinct and training to pull herself together and face becoming an adult in the wilderness. The film was shot in Hibbing.
  • Ice House – Shot near Garrison, MN, “Ice House” tells the story of two friends who go ice fishing one night on a frozen Minnesota lake. But the evening of camaraderie evolves into a murderous plot between the two men, both with hidden secrets and mysterious agendas.
  • From the North – This inspiring documentary produced by Minnesota United FC, follows the Faribault High School boys’ soccer team that went from 0–16 in 2012 to a winning program and magical state tournament run in 2015.
  • Coyote – This documentary tells the inspiring story of legendary Wayzata sailor, Mike Plant. The film follows Plant’s daring spirit as he sails around the world alone. Chronically underfunded and undermanned, Plant’s fearless belief in his dreams drives him to become an American hero of the sea.

The Twin Cities Film Fest runs from October 18th – 28th at Showplace ICON Theatre and The Shops at West End.
