The Mespies - Now Accepting Submissions!

All filmmakers are encourage to submit their valued works to the 2017 Mespies!

• Held in Minneapolis, Minnesota 

• From March 24 to March 29, 2017 

• In one of America's most beautiful theaters, the Heights.

The Mespies are a celebration of ambition, innovation, and courage in modern independent cinema. We roar with standing ovations, present medals to filmmakers with our utmost respect and admiration, engage directors/writers/actors/crew with in-depth on-camera interviews, and even write reviews, each and every audience member, and send them to the makers with our sincerest best wishes. In short, the Mespies does everything it can to push independent cinema in the direction we want it to go -- towards more ambitious stories, made in more innovative ways, told by the most courageous filmmakers.

Hosted by Cineapolis, a dominant filmmaking collaborative based in Minneapolis, responsible for three feature films in the past year: Achilles (2016), Salone (2016), and The Best of India, Late at Night (2016). Every Cineapolis premiere is a mini-festival in and of themselves, so it's even better that we'll be premiering two of our own works at the Mespies! (Out-of-competition, of course.)

Premiere of WERESQUITO: NAZI HUNTER Sept 28

Date posted: Sep 1st, 2016

View More >

"Weresquito: Nazi Hunter," the latest film by Twin Cities Producer/Director Christopher R. Mihm, will premiere Wednesday, September 28, 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the historic Heights Theater, 3951 Central Ave. NE, Columbia Heights, MN.
 
Billed in a just-released poster as "the most controversial film ever made," Mihm's 11th movie in as many years tells the story of a captured G.I. who is turned into a bloodsucking monster by Nazi scientists during World War II.  The plot follows the protagonist's post-war trail of death and destruction as he searches for the man responsible for his hideous transformation.
 
Mihm has developed an international cult following by making award-winning homages to the cheesy, black and white horror and science fiction movies of the 1950's.  His previous films include "The Monster of Phantom Lake," "It Came From Another World," "Cave Women on Mars," "Terror From Beneath The Earth," "Destination Outer Space," "Attack of the Moon Zombies," "House of Ghosts," "The Giant Spider," "The Late Night Double Feature," and "Danny Johnson Saves the World."
 
Tickets for the event are $10, available in advance by visiting http://sainteuphoria.com/merch.html.  A very limited number of tickets will be available at the door.  For information visit the website or contact Mihm at 651-341-8106.
