Minnesota has virtually no connection to the Oscars this year -- save for a cinematography nomination for native son Drew Kunin.
We do have a community of local film and video makers, whose creativity is on display at MNKINOmpls.tv, among other places.
But as far as movies with wide national releases go, we don't make a lot of them here -- and when we do, it feels like somewhatof an event.
So ahead of this weekend's Oscars and tonight's Cube Critics Trivia Mafia extravaganza, we thought we'd take a look at the widely-released movies that have been filmed (or at least partially filmed) in Minnesota and those that are set here (but filmed elsewhere). Did we miss any? Let us know!
