The Great Northern - January 28-February 7, 2021

The Great Northern celebrates our cold, creative winters through ten days of diverse programming that invigorate mind and body. In an era of changing climate that threatens our signature season, we seek to create community, inspire action, and share the resilient spirit of the North with the world.

The health and sustainability of our environment and climate are elemental to who we are as a society. Films are a powerful tool to address climate change — they educate, inspire, and empower audiences toward action. For the inaugural collaboration of The Great Northern and MSP Film, we are presenting films that speak to essential issues in the climate conversation based around the 4 elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire.

Climate Action Films:
The Biggest Little Farm (Earth)
First Daughter and the Black Snake (Water)
2040 (Air)
Rebuilding Paradise (Fire)

About the Film

The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.


The films are curated by the MSP Film Society (MSP Film), whose mission is to inform and transform individuals and communities through the power of great cinema. MSP Film has spent the last five decades celebrating a myriad of cultures, countries and issues of collective local and global concern through film, believing in the potency of storytelling to move people, and to move people to action. Our widely recognized Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival, Cine Latino or We The People film series among many others - all developed with the counsel of inspiring individuals from around the world - represent a diversity of perspectives and 100+ cultures and countries each year, providing unique platforms for learning and action through film and conversation.

Your ticket purchase directly benefits MSP Film Society during these challenging times, thank you!
