The Saint Paul Frozen Film Festival is dedicated to the celebration and advancement of independent filmmaking, as well as the celebration of the City of St. Paul, MN as a tourist destination.
The Frozen Film Festival was a 2016 addition to the Saint Paul Winter Carnival and the winter version of the St. Paul Film Festival. It showcased over 30 independent films from around the world; from documentary shorts, to feature length films. It was started by Jose “Joe” Ruiz Jr and a small team, who have put countless hours and huge amounts of effort into the launching of the festival.
The 2018 Saint Paul Frozen Film Festival took place February 7-10th, 2018. It was a celebration of independent cinema, created by filmmakers from around the world, held in Saint Paul, MN.
We hope that we may eventually see the return of the festival someday!
