Remember back when the 2011 Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival began? Remember how much colder it was that April 14th? The high temperature struggling to just barely edge into the 60s? Man, that seems like so long ago now.

Oh wait, temperatures are still mired in the 50s with cold winds blowing down Nicollet Mall here in downtown Minneapolis. So much for that illustrative device.

Nevertheless, it DOES seem like the fest has been going on for about as long as I can remember. It all ends tonight with a screening of the new film Stuck Between Stations, starring Sam Rosen, Zoe Lister-Jones, Michael Imperioli and Josh Hartnett. It was filmed in Minneapolis by a cast and crew rich in Minnesota backgrounds. Here’s the preview.

In all, nearly 200 feature films have screened down at St. Anthony Main over the last three weeks, and about another 50 short films. It’s been quite a ride. I’d love to say I’ve seen all of them, but the sad reality is that I, like so many of you, have a day job and could only clear so much time in my schedule. I feel lucky to have captured a couple dozen, myself.

For those of you who, like me, still have gaps to fill, the “Best of the Fest” schedule has been announced. Get cracking!

Friday, May 6

Saturday, May 7

Sunday, May 8
