In the midst of the Twin Cities is one of the greatest natural wonders in the world: the Mississippi River. The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership invites you to make this natural wonder visible, using the engaging medium of film.
You could could use your cellphone or a video camera, shoot something simple or complex. The important thing, however, is to tell a story. Create a vision that tugs at heartstrings or makes people laugh, that showcases an appreciation for the riverfront in Minneapolis.
We want films which inform, energize, and inspire people to action – all in 60 seconds!
We divide the Minneapolis Riverfront into four categories:
River Gorge: Ford Dam to Washington Ave. Bridge
Downtown Riverfront: Washington Ave. Bridge to Plymouth Bridge
River North: Plymouth Bridge to Lowry Bridge
Upper Harbor: Lowry Bridge to city border
