“The Home Grown Cinema Series showcases the best in locally-produced [Minnesota] feature film. The Twin Cities are home to some of the most passionate and inventive filmmakers in the industry today, with a style and vision that is uniquely mid-western.

Many of these filmmakers have intentionally chosen to work outside of the Hollywood system in order to remain true to this vision, and the Home Grown Cinema Series celebrates their independent spirit.

The Home Grown Team and the Parkway Theater are bringing together some of the brightest area talents for this debut series. The films in this lineup are truly local gems and deserve to reach a wider audience. The Home Grown Cinema Series will introduce the uninitiated to our flourishing local film community.

The inaugural Home Grown Cinema Series is scheduled to run Monday nights from May 12 to June 2, 2008 at the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis. Each night of the series two local features will play on a double bill.”

May 12: Two Harbors (dir. James Vculek) and Bill’s Big Pumpkins (dir. Ryan Foss)

May 19: Snuff: a Documentary About Killing on Camera (dir. Paul Von Soetzel) and Grown Men (dir. John Gaspard)

May 26: It Came From Another World! (dir. Christopher Mihm) and Mondo Collecto (dir. R. P. Whalen)

June 2: Seeking Wellness (dir. Daniel Schneidkraut) and Wargoon Flishe (dir. John Akre)
