Each year, the Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul hosts an epic festival dedicated to a mind-boggling number of screenings. Last year, over 40,000 cinemaphiles showed up to take in at least one of the 200 films from 70 different countries that were highlighted. With numbers like that, it's easy to see why the MSP International Film Festival is the biggest event of its kind in the Upper Midwest. Selections each year include horror flicks, indie comedies, serious dramas, and kid-friendly shorts. Those overwhelmed by the sheer number of screenings should be sure to check out one of the festival's welcoming parties, where revelers share recommendations over pints.
