The mission of the Twin Cities Film Fest is to become the premiere film festival in the Midwest showcasing exceptional independent films. We promote industry talent, provide educational, networking and distribution opportunities that can expand careers and support thought provoking content.
The festival takes place annually with a 11 day red carpet extravaganza each fall at the Shops at West End in the Showplace ICON Theatres. With over 90 films, special events, nightly parties and daily educational opportunities, TCFF brings independent film to mainstream audiences. Our filmmakers come from all across the country to showcase their film art and to network with filmgoers. With premieres of Hollywood blockbusters and Oscar contenders such as The Imitation Game, Wild, Silver Linings Playbook, and August Osage County among others over the past several years, TCFF has quickly become the ‘IT’ place to be for Studio Films prior to their theatrical release!
TCFF deeply cares about our community as a whole and we program socially conscious film projects as well as partner with other Non Profits to help spread their word through the medium of film. We’ve highlighted Education, Bullying, Hunger, Poverty and Sex Trafficking over the last 5 years and look forward to putting a spotlight on other deserving causes that hit home in our community. Our audiences have grown at a 25% pace each year and the demographics are of that of a well established arts institution. The festival employs local artists and talent and has year around presence via our Insider Series, Member screenings, Actor Expo, Oscar Party and other special events.
Being a 501c3 Non Profit, Twin Cities Film Fest relies heavily on community support. We thrive on individual donations, grants and corporate contributions in the form of sponsorships. We empower you to reach out to us and find out more about our organization and we would be honored to have your support. We would love to have you join our family and thank you for your support of film arts.
