It’s another gorgeous Fall Day in the Twin Cities… and with TCFF underway, all is well in the [cinematic] world
Here are some of the film highlights of Day 3 from our hosts Doug Sidney and Ingrid Moss:
My day starts with the Women in Film Education Panel, featuring three filmmakers/talents whose films are premiering at TCFF:
Jessica Cameron, writer, director, producer, actor, “Truth or Dare”
Hannah Campbell, co-producer, actor, “Screwed”
Molly Green, writer, director, “Forev”
Meighan McGuire – moderator
Check out their bio at TCFF site. I’m so glad every event now takes place on the Festival Lounge right at the Showplace ICON Theatre venue. It’s so convenient for everyone involved.
Here are the films my blogger staff and I are going to catch tonight:
Sophie and Pete are kind of friends, but mostly they’re just neighbors. On their way to pick up Pete’s sister Jess from her sorority house, a joke about getting married escalates and their car stalls out. Forev is a romantic comedy about how far you can go without saying what you mean.
Hot and Bothered (short film, screening before Forev & Screwed)
Special Guest: Jake Green
Desperate Singles get all tangled up when a compulsive internet dater loses track of her accounts.
Winter in the Blood

Special Guest: Chaske Spencer, Actor (Twilight) and Alex Smith, director
Virgil First Raise (Chaske Spencer) wakes in a ditch on the hardscrabble plains of Montana, hungover and badly beaten. He returns home to his ranch on the reservation, only to find that his wife, Agnes, (Julia Jones) has left him. Worse, she’s taken his beloved rifle.
Special Guests: Andrew Melby – Director, Reggie Henderson-Writer and Star, Toki Wright-Actor
An independent feature film, based on true events from the life of the writer Reggie Henderson. The story follows Kevin as he sets out to find his father, whom he hasn’t seen in more than thirty years.
