The MSPIFF is a catalyst for artistic discovery and an essential Spring exhibition showcasing more than 200 new films from around the globe. Over 17 exhilarating days, Minneapolis, Minnesota blossoms into an epicenter of cinematic achievement as 40,000 avid film fans converge on the City of Lakes for hundreds of packed screenings, unforgettable parties and illuminating filmmaker conversations. MSPIFF’s exceptional lineup annually includes films from both intrepid new artists and influential luminaries alike, hailing from more than 60 countries.

MSPIFF champions films that cross boundaries and shatter expectations by presenting bold international and American narrative, documentary, and animated films of all lengths in both competitive and non-competitive sections. Over the past few years, juries have awarded over $100,000 USD in cash and prizes to winners of the annual Emerging Filmmaker, Documentary, and Minnesota Made competitions.

For more than three decades, MSPIFF has steadily grown from a modest regional celebration of artistic achievement into a pillar of the festival circuit. Known for its Midwest hospitality, offering complimentary accreditation to visiting guests, and featuring a one-of-a-kind travel fund to encourage filmmaker attendance, the festival provides a platform for artists to engage with audiences-and connect with their peers-along the picturesque banks of the Mississippi River.

Coming Through the Rye

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided. The bargain of my career!

Inside Sportfishing

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.

Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
