The Mespies - Now Accepting Submissions!

Date posted: Sep 15th, 2016

View More >

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.)
