Held in the historic West Hollywood venue Pearl’s Sunset Strip, the evening kicked off with a panel discussion featuring filmmakers Julian Higgins (winner, Ron Howard Canon Competition; AFI alumnus), Nate Kelly (UPM on Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project) and Andrew Smith (filmmaker, “The Slaughter Rule,” “Winter In The Blood”) with Montana Film Commissioner Deny Staggs about the production opportunities available to filmmakers.

All three filmmakers drew from their experiences shooting in Montana over the course of what turned out to be a very lively discussion moderated by Indiewire Editor-in-Chief and General Manager Dana Harris — a discussion that explored the topic of shooting on location from both a budgetary and creative standpoint.
