Get Real to Go


Get Real City Pages Documentary Film Festival

"brings a worthy slate each fall that has earned genuine film-snob bragging rights,"

says the

Star Tribune. It's "a lifesaver for those discouraged by... manufactured reality programming,"

says the

MN Daily, and it "may be the most consistently excellent of the Twin Cities' many film festivals,"

says the

St. Paul Pioneer Press. Well, we could have told you all that, but you wouldn't have believed us. Here's a

full schedule

(Nov. 4-10), all of which looks great (all films screen at the

Lagoon Cinema

in Uptown [official site


], except for Prince's

Sign O' the Times



], which screens at the

Uptown Theatre

). Some personal recommendations:
