As you may already know, like everything else, the Minneapolis St. Paul Film Festival is on hold this spring. Normally held for 3 weeks in April, this year it will have to wait until public gatherings are advisable again. Not to worry, this week’s newsletter offered some family streaming recommendations suggested by the staff of the Film Society. Several of these suggestions assume you have an Amazon Prime membership.
