Made in Montana movies getting international exposure

Donnie Sexton, Montana Office of Tourism

Montana's film industry has had a busy couple of years, with three feature films produced in the state.

Two of the films - "Nebraska" and "Jimmy P." - were shown at the Cannes film festival held in May. The third -"Winter in the Blood" - will premiere at the Los Angeles film festival this Friday.

Montana Film Commissioner Deny Staggs

"There's such an allure to Montana - and it's worldwide."

Film Commissioner Deny Staggs sat down with News Director Sally Mauk to talk about those films - and Montana's growing film and television industry.


Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
