The Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership would like to extend its warm thanks to each of the entrants in the 2017 Mississippi Minute Film Festival! We’ve been so lucky to have a wide range of talent, interest, and entries that each warrant a viewing (or more!).
The winners are shown below. All winners – with the exception of the People’s Choice award – were determined by a panel of judges. The People’s Choice award drew more than 22,000 video views on Facebook, nearly 50 percent more than in 2016.
Relax, and enjoy a range of compelling perspectives on the Mississippi River!
