Corrie-Francis-Parks attended as a guest in 2012

I went mostly to attend the Doc Shop, a series of workshops which is held in between the two weekends of the festival, so I didn't see many of the films. The ones I did see were great, however. The workshops were on interesting topics and quite engaging. There are a few big distributors and producers that come out to hear pitches and find films, so that seems to bump up the profile of the festival quite a bit. Missoula is an artsy mountain town and the festival has a lot of local support so the theater was packed. Corrie Around 4 years ago
