Twin Cities fest features indie films

MINNEAPOLIS – You don’t have to be a star to walk the red carpet at this month’s Solstice Film Festival in Minneapolis.

The red carpet rolls out June 18 in the Minneapolis Uptown area, and it’s open to anyone.

It’s the fourth annual Solstice, which celebrates independent films. Around 30 to 45 films were selected for the three-day event.

The opening-night movie is “Don McKay,” starring Thomas Haden Church and Elisabeth Shue in the story of a high school janitor who returns to his hometown to hook up with his old girlfriend.

Suburban World Theatre hosts the festival.

An “all-access pass” costs $30.
