MONTANA FILM OFFICE TO HOST MONTANA FILM + NEW MEDIA FORUM

The Montana Department of Commerce’s Montana Film Office (MFO) invites all film, television, and new media producers to attend the first annual Montana Forum on Film and New Media in historic Butte, Mont.

A gathering of all filmmakers, videographers, media production groups, and their colleagues, the Forum will allow the Montana media production community to come together for the first time and discuss the resources available to them, current production activity in the state, and future challenges that Montana may see.

Attendees will be invited to historic Butte, Mont. in mid-October, where, over the course of two days, they will meet and share their production experiences and knowledge with top Montana production companies and major film and commercial industry influencers, all concluding with a keynote address from a major MFO film industry partner.

The Forum follows in the footsteps of other Montana Department of Commerce ventures that focus on supporting growing Montana businesses with access to State resources and guidance on establishing and expanding business ventures across all industries under the Big Sky.

“We’re beyond excited to have this opportunity,” said Deny Staggs, the Montana Film Commissioner. “With all our film and new media partners working on varied projects across the state, it can be hard for us to connect and share. The Forum will give us the time to make sure that our production community is utilizing every development tool out there as they continue to grow.”

Pre-registration for the forum is available at the Montana Film Office website and is open until September 30th. All pre-registered attendees will save 25% off the registration free and have access to all updates, vendor information, and opportunities for input on the interactive parts of the Forum.
