Z-FEST Best of Fest Screenings at the
ST. MICHAEL CINEMA 15 Theater Complex

Save the date! It’s that time of the year again, the Z-Fest Best of Fest Screenings are happening on Saturday, May 18th at 7 pm, at the Saint Michael Cinema.

If you are interested in experiencing the incredible talent of local Twin Cities film makers, this is the night to come out and see the world premiere of the top sixteen 7-minute short films, hand-picked by an independent panel of judges across the country from over 50 films submitted this year.

This year we have some great action films, a fable, a documentary, super heroes, some horror, drama, a beautiful art piece, and of course comedy.

Z-Fest events are a great networking opportunity for industry folks.  Come and find that upcoming talent – actors, writers, dp’s, directors, producers, hair and makeup, graphic artists – we’ll have them all.  You can watch their stunning work, and then hang out and mingle with them afterward.
If you are simply a film buff, here’s a chance to see good, creative, stimulating films – and support the community.
Tickets are only $12. You can purchase your tickets online using this link: BUY HERE!
Come enjoy an evening of the top 16 films from this year’s Z Fest while supporting local independent films at a hometown theater.

A Quick Word About St. Michael Cinema

It’s amazing! Locally owned, unique feel, very spacious and non-corporate. Two bars, good food, and very reasonably priced. This place has it going on! Well worth the quick hop up 94. it is right off the freeway. Just look for exit 205A, the next exit after Rogers. In addition to movies, they host live music, comedy shows, have outdoor concerts in the Summer and have converted their parking lot into a drive-in! it’s really a lot of fun. The whole theme of it is a town square somewhere in France. Very nice, we are so excited to be there.
