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

On the morning of Nov. 8, 2018, a devastating firestorm engulfed the picturesque city of Paradise, California. By the time the Camp Fire was extinguished, it had killed 85 people, displaced 50,000 residents and destroyed 95% of local structures. It was the deadliest U.S. fire in 100 years — and the worst ever in California’s history. Rebuilding Paradise, from Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, is a moving story of resilience in the face of tragedy, as a community ravaged by disaster comes together to recover what was lost and begin the important task of rebuilding.

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.
