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.
We believe in the revival of film art for mainstream audiences. TCFF is the gateway for movie lovers into the deep well of American Independent Cinema from across the country. The original film-art we showcase starkly contrasts the increasingly formulaic blockbuster that falls flat with sophisticated audiences.
We believe in the Minnesota Film Artist. The high caliber film talent found in Minnesota deserves a nationally visible platform. TCFF is dedicated to the cultivation of local filmmakers by providing educational resources to expand skill sets, networking with the national film industry, and nurturing distribution opportunities.
We believe in changing the world through film. No medium provokes discussion and evokes empathy more than film. TCFF programming is replete with diverse voices that challenge the status quo and shift perceptions. Socially responsible programming pushes our audience to make an individual difference in their community and positively shape society.
