Solstice Film Festival
St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
The Solstice Film Festival represents the spirit of our community and a celebration of filmmaking talent and the art of cinema from around the world. SFF will offer a varied slate of films, special events and educational initiatives, presenting Minnesota with an engaging cultural event for both the local population and visitors to the Twin Cities.
Solstice Film Festival Founder and Executive Director, Devin Halden, dreamt about a film festival that not only showcased incredible movies featuring the film industries up and coming talent, but he also wanted to transform downtown St. Paul, MN into a hub of entertainment, allowing the festival goer to experience the lifestyle of paparazzi and movie stars. The Red Carpet will be rolled out and the flash bulbs will be popping when Minnesota gives Tinsel Town a run for it's money!
Our Grand Venue, the historic Fitzgerald Theater in the heart of St. Paul, was temporarliy converted into a 1,000 seat movie house with a full-sized movie screen and state-of-the-art surround sound.
The festival's special events are a popular element to our very balanced event. With the addition of live music and benefit concerts to the festival program, Solstice Film Festival has truly become a champion of the creative arts.
Recognized every year as one of the top festivals for programing, SFF continued building on the reputation with bringing light several World Premiers, including "Belivers" from award winning filmmaker Daniel Myrick (Blair Witch Project).
We also pride ourselves in going the extra mile for all of our films in programming. With distribution reps from major studio labels in attendance for the event, films in our programming are screened for many influential individuals who can bring your film to the next level.
The Onion newspaper threw one of the most outrageous events of the week. Live music, open bar and plenty of socilites graced the event and partied until they were forced to leave.
Our saucy Burlesque Show proved to be an attendee favorite. Le Cirque Rouge danced and sang the night away while dressed...and undressed... scantly clad.
The Closing Night was bittersweet. Tired bodies from the weeks events filled Fitzgerald Theater for one final celebration. 12 awards were given out to recognize many deserving films. A special treat by Dreamworks Animation and two up and coming documentarians brought the first annual Solstice Film Festival to a close.
We are now back at it, planning what will be a bigger and better 2008 Solstice Film Festival. Local, national and international exposure is brought to Solstice Film Festival each year. All media eyes will be on us again as everyone waits to see what we have planned for 2008.
SEE YOU THERE!
