New monthly film series to focus on films made in or by Minnesotans

11 July 2023

The Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul is launching a new monthly series devoted to films made in and/or by Minnesotans.

It kicks off July 17 with a screening of “Hollywood Fringe” at the Main Cinema in Minneapolis. Tickets are $15 and include a 6 p.m. reception and screening at 7:30 followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. For more details, see

“Hollywood Fringe” debuted in 2020 and played several film festivals, including the 2021 Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, where it won the audience choice award.

A dark comedy about acting, life and fringe festivals, “Hollywood Fringe” stars Justin Kirk (“Succession”) and Jennifer Prediger as two ex-Minnesotan actors in Los Angeles who stage a Fringe play about trying to make art in an industry town. It was produced, written and directed by Minnesota filmmakers Megan Huber and Wyatt McDill and features music from local favorites John Munson (Semisonic, the New Standards) and Lucy Michelle.

Film Threat called it “beautifully cryptic and emotionally drawing,” while the San Jose Mercury News said “anyone with a love for theater and acting will appreciate the comical antics that ensue — particularly one hilarious improv bit in a public place.”
