Carpatho-Rusyn documentary "Osadné" will play next month in the Twin Cities

Thanks to Carpatho-Rusyn Society member Maria Silvestri for word that Prešov-born documentary filmmaker Marko Škop's "Osadné" is on the schedule for next month's Minneapolis-St. Paul Film Festival

The film's schedule hasn't been announced.

Škop says his film's U.S. premiere will actually be at Winston Salem's River Run Film Festival, and will also play at Toronto's Hot Docs Festival.

The documentary looks at the Rusyn village of Osadné in Eastern Slovakia, and a group 
of village leaders who try to meet with European Union officials in Brussels to help the 
struggling community.
Variety called the film "gently humorous," and it earned the Best Documentary prize at 
the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic.
