FLIC Features Award-Winning Filmmakers

The Montana Film Office is glad to  announce that the Flathead Lake International Cinemafest (FLIC) is going full steam towards its January 24 opening.

Nestled along the beautiful shores of Flathead Lake, FLIC is entering its second year of screening films from around the world. Entries came from across the globe to be screening for audiences in the valley.

Films will screen all day Saturday and Sunday, with an after party taking place for the public to mingle with the featured filmmakers on Saturday night. Opening night will feature Polson filmmaker Brooke Pepion Swaney and her film “Okay Breath Auralee”.

Emmy nominated and Webby award-winning animator Jeff Chiba Stearns will be on hand Saturday at 1:30 for animation workshop and Alber Iron Cloud Miller will screen her film “Dakota 38” at 8pm.

For more information on Alberta, Jeff, and Brooke you can read FLIC’s release about them.

An All Access Pass plus individual party and film block tickets can be purchased online at or at Showboat Cinemas, 416 Main St., Polson. Last year the first showing on Friday was sold out, so reserve tickets early. Information is also available by calling 406-274-0181 or emailing
