Where the Sky is Big…

I’m in Missoula, Montana for the 4th annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival. People keep asking me if it’s cold here. It is.

I got in last night and hoofed it the Wilma Theatre. It’s the real home of the fest. It’s got about 1100 seats and I think almost all of them were full for the World Premiere of a new HBO doc, Montana Meth. The film is disturbing. Montana apparently has the 2nd highest meth problem in the United States. Just what I wanted to know before I walked the 10-minute walk back to my hotel alone.

I’m on the jury here – looking at short docs and mini docs (what’s a mini doc?!). I’ll post some pics of the theatre later.

Also Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore? is showing here on Monday night. There’s a great review in the alternative weekly paper the Missoula Independent.
