With COVID-19 still having an impact on 2021 plans, the organizers of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival have revealed an altered program for this year's event.

After the onset of the pandemic caused the 2020 festival to go wholly online, this year organizers are planning for a hybrid event.

As well as presenting films and panels "primarily in the virtual world," the MSP Film Society says it's planning for "several outdoor screenings," provided state and local COVID rules allow.

Organizers say that more details will be released in the coming months, but the 10-day festival is currently slated for May 13-23.

All-access festival passes are now available for $175 for MSP Film Society members through Mar. 20, at which point they rise to $200.

Non-member all-access passes cost $250 and include a 1-year membership to the society.

The movie lineup for the 40th MSP Film Festival will be announced on Apr. 22.

You can buy all-access tickets to the event here.
