Documentary Film Festival Offers 150 Films

Big Sky Documentary Film Festival

Michael Marsolek talks with Gita Saedi Kiely about the 2015 Big Sky Documentary Film Festival.

The 12th Annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival(BSDFF) will be packed with enough films, events, live performances, panels and parties to test the mettle of even the hardiest of filmgoers, families and fun-seekers. The festival opens February 6 with a free screening, fresh from its Sundance premiere, of Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney’s GOING CLEAR: SCIENTOLOGY AND THE PRISON OF BELIEF.

The festival runs from February 6-16 across four venues in downtown Missoula and will include four competitions in the Feature, Short, Mini-Doc, and Big Sky Award categories.
