We’re excited to announce we’ll be launching Minnesota’s first and very own adventure film festival in partnership with Lakes and Legends Brewing entitled the #AdventureMN Film Fest!

This will be an ongoing film festival with multiple film nights throughout 2019. We’ll be featuring films from the Midwest and beyond with a special focus on Minnesota filmmakers.


Our mission is to ignite passions and advocate for outdoor adventure lifestyles among the wild landscapes of the midwest and beyond. We aim to screen films that will inspire, unite and energize our inner wild selves.

Films will focus on adventurers and athletes in fierce pursuit of their sport or passion. We are also interested in films that encourage us to jump out of our comfort zones, explore what's in our own backyard and discover new worlds.

Our goal is to connect with filmmakers and the adventure community living in and around the midwest. We welcome films from around the globe, but we will be focusing on emerging and experienced filmmakers from the Midwest.

Thanks! We look forward to watching your film.

All films need to relate to outdoor adventure and have been completed in 2016 or later. Shorter films are encouraged!

We have two categories:

1. AdventureMN – for films by Minnesota filmmakers or based in Minnesota.

Please note: when submitting a film from Minnesota, use "Minnesota" in your application instead of "MN".

2. Midwest and Beyond – for all adventure films not related to Minnesota

NOTE: Overall, special consideration will be given to filmmakers and topics from the following states: Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
