Minnesota Features
The Twin Cities Film Fest is dedicated to shining a spotlight on the local film industry. If the MAJORITY (50%+) of a given production (both narrative and/or documentary) was filmed in the state of Minnesota, we encourage you to submit your films with this designation for special consideration. Proof of local production will be required upon Acceptance into TCFF. We are only accepting FEATURE Length Films in this category, meaning run times of 41 minutes or longer.

All shorts should be submitted in the Shorts Category in WAB.

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.

Formally established in 2009, and with roots tracing back to 2005, the Twin Cities Film Fest has an impressive track record of recruiting, celebrating and showcasing brilliant works of visual art. During its first fully-realized festival in 2010, TCFF roared into the festival scene with a critically-lauded lineup of independent Oscar-caliber films and renowned industry guests. For an encore, TCFF has packed a major punch with another slate of thought-provoking dramas and socially-conscious documentaries, this time also adding panel discussions, educational seminars and local networking events. Even more encouraging: The increasing attendance figures point to an event on the rise, and the interest levels are at an all time high for movie studios wanting to promote and premiere their films at the festival.
