Mississippi Minute Film Festival
Posted 8/3/2014
The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership announces the opening of its Mississippi Minute Film Festival. While revitalization efforts have reclaimed portions of the Minneapolis riverfront, much of it is still inaccessible and in places virtually invisible. Create a one-minute film that tugs at heartstrings or makes people laugh, that showcases an appreciation for--or the future potential of--the urban riverfront in Minneapolis. The film should inform, energize, and inspire our citizenry to action--all in 60 seconds. Submissions are due by Sept. 4, 5 p.m. Winning entries will be screened and honorees named at the third annual Minneapolis Riverfront Summit on Monday, Oct. 20 at the Mill City Museum. More details at www.mississippiminute.org.
