June 7th, 2009 - 8:30 pm ICT by GD  

June 18 to 20, the red carpet for the 4th Solstice Film Festival will be rolled out in uptown Minneapolis. The Suburban World Theater in Uptown Minneapolis, Minnesota will be hosting the screening of the 2009 Solstice Film Festival.

Over 30 to 45 films has been selected by the SFF to be screened during the 3 day event. The 4th SFF will put up some of the best independent movies from around the globe as well as the country. An added attraction for the movie buffs in Minnesota will be the horde of local filmmakers who will be presenting their films at the event.

The movie for the opening night will be “Don McKay” which stars Thomas Haden Church and Elisabeth Shue. The story revolves around a high school janitor played by Church, who returns to his hometown in hope of rekindling his fazed out romance with his old girl friend played by Shue.

The price of an all access pass has been fixed at $30. It is going to include the opening night ceremony, a pass to all the screened films as well as the closing night awards event on June 20, in the package.

The Solstice Film Festival has, over the brief years since its debut, established itself as one of the most prestigious film festivals in the mid-west. It is now counted as one of the best in the region.

The aim of the SFF is to provide recognition and support to independent new comers in the field of movie making, musicians and artists by showcasing their craft in a recognized platform. Each year, in the progressive order, the event has grown a notch bigger, and its aim of turning in to one of the best film festivals in the country does not seem very far fetching.
