About Hockeyland

Northern Minnesota is felt in the bones—the deep chill of winter, the toll of a day in the mine, bruises from the hockey rink. This unforgiving country has forged an identity through a tradition of grit. But times they are a changin’ and the modern world comes with new expectations. Facing down an uncertain future, senior boys in rival towns—one emerging dynasty, one with a fabled past—skate for a last chance to etch their names into local lore. In America’s far reaches, a portrait of young men on the brink. This is Hockeyland.

The Great Northern - January 27-February 6, 2022

As people of the North, we’re a hardy bunch. We don’t just passively endure what our winters dish out; we rally, we play, we explore, we reflect, we relish in all the opportunities our cold season offers. Not surprisingly then, we are some of the bravest, most intrepid individuals around. And, as a community, that makes us something special. The inspiring stories and people within the films presented at The Great Northern 2022 celebrate perseverance, common purpose, and building a legacy for a healthier, more inclusive future. Presented by MSP Film and The Great Northern.
