Where does a compelling story for a film come from? What’s the relationship of the filmmaker to the script? What’s the power of culturally specific stories? Filmmaker Michael Forstein (2016 recipient of a McKnight Media Artist Fellowship) explores the complex art of telling a story in film with playwright Deborah Yarchun—along with excerpts from Forstein’s critically acclaimed short film Meat.

Tickets may be reserved by contacting the Rimon office at 952-381-3449.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. The Rimon Artist Salon Series is also funded in part by a gift from Bruce Goodman and an anonymous gift in memory of David Tychman.

P’Chotchka – A Tasty Sampling of Rimon-Supported Artists


Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council invites you to support its sixth annual P’Chotchka, a fast-paced evening of art, film, and performance, on Monday, June 5, 2017, 6 p.m., at the Metropolitan Ballroom in Minneapolis.

This event is a benefit for Rimon and it features eight outstanding artists whose work has been highlighted by Rimon over the past five years. During P’Chotchka the artists speak about ideas and experiences that inspired their artistic work. Eighteen images of each artist’s choosing are projected on a screen, and the artists talk about each image for 18 seconds. The result is a lively, stimulating smorgasbord of ideas.

Support P’Chotchka!
