Get ready for “The Final Cut!”

The Hairdo or DIE gang is at it again! Be sure to head down to Chuckers in Rush City on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 7pm for the conclusion of their epic trilogy: “Hairdo or DIE: The Final Cut.” And all proceeds go to benefit the local food shelf!

Al Milgrom returning to Pine City today!

We’re thrilled to welcome Pine City’s own Al Milgrom back to his hometown today for a special sneak preview of his new documentary film! Al’s presentation will start right at 6 p.m., so make sure to get there in plenty of time to see the man whose lifetime of work earned him the title “The godfather of Twin Cities cinema.”

Afterwards, stick around for more outstanding movies, including astonishing works like “What Remains” and “Two Ghosts” – the top prizewinners in their category – and the unforgettable drama “216 Months,” the very last film of the weekend.

Map to festival locations – and “Filmmaker Meet & Greet” reminder!

Below you’ll find the map to the two sites of the 2014 Highway 61 Film Festival.

If you’re coming in from I-35, take the south Pine City exit and head east on Hillside Avenue. Go through two stoplights, and you’ll see Pine Technical & Community College right in front of you. There’s plenty of parking in the parking lot, and you can grab a bag of hot buttered popcorn from the red wagon on your way in!

When you’re heading to the 10pm shows at Pine City’s Pizza Pub, take Hillside Avenue back to Main Street and turn right. Continue south through the stop sign. We’re having major construction on 3rd Avenue, so your best bet is to turn right on 4th Avenue. Frandsen Bank and Trust has very generously allowed us to use their parking lot on Friday and Saturday nights, so pull in, walk around the block to Pizza Pub and come on in.

And … hey filmmakers! Planning to come up to Pine City for the festival on Friday or Saturday night? Between 9-10pm, make sure you’re at Pizza Pub for our “Filmmaker Meet & Greet.” It’s a chance to exchange ideas and enjoy some food and a beverage or two before the 10pm movies start at the same location. See you there!
