This week, the Twin Cities Film Festival returns for 10 days of screenings, red carpets, panel talks, and happy hours. The lineup features award-winning works, movies with Oscar buzz, free educational events, and opportunities for youth. Highlights include Green Book, a film set in the 1960s that follows an African American classical pianist (Mahershala Ali) and a working-class driver (Viggo Mortensen) as they make their way through the American South on tour. If Beale Street Could Talk brings James Baldwin’s novel to the big screen, helmed by Oscar-winner Barry Jenkins, whose critically lauded Moonlight featured heavily in film fests a few years ago. For local work, check out Time for Ilhan, a documentary following Ilhan Omar’s 2016 Minnesota House of Representatives campaign. For tickets, lineups, and showtimes, visit twincitiesfilmfest.org.
