The 36th Annual Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival is here. From April 13 - 29, 350 films from dozens of countries will be playing at five theaters across the Twin Cities. It's a massive undertaking, and one of the best film events in the Midwest.
As an MSP-based film podcast, Double Exposure can't pass up this festival. Up first is Jesse Bishop, Programming Director for the MSP Film Society. I asked Jesse what it takes to put on a film festival of this size, what MSPIFF has to offer compared to the thousands of festivals in the world, and what films he's particularly excited about.
Enjoy the interview, and if you're in MSP, go see a few movies this month. We'll have some recommendations later in the festival run.
