Thank you for your interest in applying for Press Access to the 39th Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. Accreditation is available to reporters from all fields of the media (print, online, TV and radio) who cover the Festival, the films, and the artists.

All journalists requesting accreditation are asked to file an application with our Press Department. An approved application entitles you to request interviews with filmmakers and guests, receive screeners (on an individual basis and upon approval from both the Film Society and the distributor) and access to Regular and Premium screenings (by Rush Line only). A limited number of Full Access Press Passes are allotted each year, however you may be granted restricted access to certain Festival events.

  • Regular Screenings (any screening priced $15 or less)
  • Premium Screenings via the Rush Line only (any screening priced more than $15 General Admission)
  • Best of Fest Screenings
  • Access to the Filmmaker Lounge
