PREVIEW: Arts Board Film Festival

The Minnesota State Arts Board has announced the schedule for the 2016 Arts Board Film Festival, a free exposition of films by 32 filmmakers and groups of filmmakers who received Arts Board grants between 2013 and 2015. Films range from 1-minute dance films (of which there are 10) to 20-minute excerpts of larger works, and embrace a wide variety of styles including animation, experimental, and traditional narrative. The film festival coincides with the St. Paul Art Crawl.
