Tonight at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis, the Eden Prairie based Real Estate company Re/Max, along with Bell Mortgage, are sponsoring a City and Neighborhood Film Festival.
This annual festival is in its fourth year and is the result of a competition among visual artists to create short films about a neighborhood where they live or come from. Entries were submitted during the month of October and fifteen finalists were chosen.
There’s a six thousand dollar prize for the winner.
Ed Dillon is the film festival coordinator for Re/Max, and Kao Choua Vue is one of the filmmakers who worked with young people to get a couple of projects into the competition.

In a big city like Minneapolis where different cultural groups can be isolated in specific neighborhoods, it takes extra effort to break down the boundaries that separate people.
A nonprofit group called City Stay is doing exactly that.
The organization offers workshops and seminars and a summer program to help people learn about one another. Participants from age 14 and up can join one or two week programs designed to de-mystify how others live.
Julie Knopp is the executive director of City Stay. She talked with KFAI’s Yvette Howie, who asked why the idea of City Stay is important.
