The Tucker Center and the University of Minnesota Athletic Department are pleased to announce the return and official 2012 selections of the Tucker Center Film Festival. The festival will take place on January 30, 2012, at TCF Bank Stadium in the DQ Club Room and will feature the Midwest Premiere of Salaam Dunk, as well as the locally-produced short film, Grappling Girls. The event is part of the 26th annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD).

The feature film, Salaam Dunk, is a stirring account of an Iraqi women’s basketball team at the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani (AUIS) in Kurdistan. Grappling Girls is a documentary-in-progress about women’s competitive wrestling—an emerging sport in the US.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the films beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at tcff2012.eventbrite.com. Discounted rates are available to students and to groups of 15 or more.
