5th Annual Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis and St.Paul

It's almost here! The 5th Annual Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The festival will be held this week, April 4-7, at the Minneapolis College of Arts and Design.

This year's lineup of contemporary, award winning films was carefully selected by a committee of native Italian speakers who live in the Twin Cities. There was a lot of passion and debate about which films to include. In the end, the selection committee believes we have a lineup of unprecedented artistry and quality. We've also arranged to have two of the film directors travel here for the Minnesota debut of their films. All this effort is to deliver an amazing experience for you!

Among the many reasons to come to the Italian Film Festival this week:

· An opportunity to meet and attend a free directors workshop with Niccolò Bruna the director of Dust and Alessandro Comodin, director of Summer of Giacomo.

· A selection of fantastic Italian foods, wine and beers to enjoy before the films.

· Thought-provoking post-film panel discussions.

· Great people and extraordinary films that will keep you talking for weeks to come!
