The ever popular Italian Film Festival of Minneapolis/St. Paul returns for its ninth year, with eight contemporary Italian movies and a celebration of director Sergio Leone, with a screening of his masterpiece, Once Upon a Time in the West.
From Thursday, February 16 through Sunday, February 19, we'll be bringing the Twin Cities blockbuster comedies, searing dramas, and thought provoking and touching films that explore the vast complexities of Italy and its people.
We open with our Opening Night Party and Live Auction at the beautiful Minneapolis Event Center (212 2nd St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414), right around the corner from the St. Anthony Main Theater. Guests are invited to enjoy complimentary appetizers and drinks while bidding on unique items at our annual live auction, hosted by WCCO-TV news anchor Frank Vascellaro. All proceeds from this event benefit the Italian Cultural Center.
All films will be screened at St. Anthony Main Theater 3 in Minneapolis (115 SE Main St, Minneapolis, MN 55414). All movies are shown in Italian with English subtitles, with the exception of Once Upon a Time in the West (dubbed in English). Most movies will be followed by a short discussion.
