First report from Big Sky

I’ve been at Big Sky ( since Friday. It has been an absolutely amazing experience and my film hasn’t even screened yet! This is a beautiful city surrounded by snow-capped mountains whose residents are some of the friendliest and kindest people I have ever met. We (great P.A. Amira and I) have seen many movies in the restored Wilma Theater and have attended a filmmaker party every night. It’s a great place to network with filmmakers at all levels of experience who are very supportive of each other.  Today, Melody Gilbert (biz partner and doc filmmaker) joined us for a few days. Tomorrow, I’ll be speaking at a high school, participating on a “panel” about short docs, and then my film screens at 4:00 pm
