Fargo Film Festival

An international film festival featuring independent, silent, and classic films at the Historic Fargo Theatre. Starting Tuesday and playing movies nearly non-stop through Saturday, the Fargo Film Festival provides an extraordinary opportunity for filmmakers’ work to be shown on the big silver screen and movie buffs to see up-and-coming talent and fan favorites in a beautifully restored, state of the art, 870-seat art deco theatre.

“Bathtubs Over Broadway” is set to be the opening night showcase, with special guests Dava Whisenant and Steve Young in attendance.

Amidst the line-up is a special showing of “Napoleon Dynamite” followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members; Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Efren Ramirez (Pedro).
