The TCFF will also feature 20 world premieres of locally-produced features and short films, including the critically acclaimed comedy drama "Pollywogs," shot in the northern part of Minnesota by Virginia native Karl Jacob; and "Delivery," a horror film from Woodbury natives Adam Schindler and Brian Netto that's found success on the film festival circuit.
