MSP Film Presents Virtual Cinema!

Though our daily in-house cinema programming is temporarily suspended and the 2020 MSPIFF disrupted for now, we are busy looking for creative ways to bring film viewing opportunities to you, our amazing members and patrons!

We are partnering with independent distributor Strand Releasing to bring a brave new alternative online experience to film fans in our community for home viewing!

Your purchase will directly support MSP Film as we reassess, plan for the future, and uphold our commitment to bringing our community together through the very best in international independent cinema. Thank you. We do it for you and couldn't do it without you.

About the Film

Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive compulsive gay twentysomething whose fear of dying alone leads him to a baffling conclusion: he might not be gay after all. When he meets Rory, a whip-smart struggling actress with her own set of insecurities, the two forge a relationship that’s all talk and no sex. Writer-Director-Star James Sweeney delivers a razor sharp rom-com that’s equal parts Classical Hollywood and distinctly 21st century, exploring just how elastic our definitions of love and sexuality can get.


"A sweet, funny and thoroughly winning romantic comedy that’s a kind of a bi-curious take on When Harry Met Sally for the Millennial crowd or anyone looking for some brainy, banter-rific fun" – Los Angeles Times

"Queer rom-com Straight Up is the first great comedy of the year" – New Now Next

"Explores star-crossed lovers from every angle of the Kinsey scale" - The Wrap

Extraordinary foreign films, must-see American indies, and groundbreaking documentaries from around the world, screening weekly at MSP Film Society.
