Congratulations to our winners!

In the midst of the Twin Cities is one of the greatest natural wonders in the world: the Mississippi River and the National Park Service’s only park focused on the river: the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. In celebration of the National Park Service’s Centennial, the Minneapolis Riverfront Partnership is expanding the Mississippi Minute film festival to include the entire 72 miles of this unique riverfront park.

2016 winners!


We divided the 72-mile National Park into four categories:

Upper Mississippi: Dayton and Ramsey to Minneapolis City Limits

Minneapolis Riverfront: Minneapolis northern city limits to Ford Dam

St. Paul Riverfront: Ford Dam to St. Paul Southern City Limits

Lower Mississippi: St. Paul Southern City Limits to Hastings/Point Douglas
