Looking for a respite between flights? Want to learn more about the people and culture of Minnesota and the region while traveling through MSP Airport? The See18 film screening room is the perfect place for both.

Located between Gates C18 and C19 at MSP Airport's Terminal 1, the screening room features 21 new films – most just a few minutes long – all around the theme of "Someone That Looks Like Me: Exploring Identity and Place Through Minnesota Arts and Culture."

The nearly four hours of video has been curated into four sub-topics: an overview of Minnesota’s land and history, the diversity of cultures and culinary arts, individual artist profiles and stories of resilience and healing.

Many of the videos were produced by TPT, the local Public Broadcasting System affiliate. But some have a more national scope from the TED Talk collection on YouTube.

The short films run continuously in the screening room, but can also be viewed online at the Airport Foundation MSP’s website, which manages the award-winning arts program at MSP jointly with the Metropolitan Airports Commission.

All the films are close-captioned, and the space is wired with telecoil/Assisted Listening System to provide people who use equipped hearing aids greater accessibility.
