Screen Writer & Filmmaker
Idaho’s filmmaking community is small but mighty. Our state’s dramatic landscapes, unique history, and overall unfamiliarity for most audiences means we have a perspective that is new for most people (viewers or filmmakers). You can tell stories in Idaho that can be told nowhere else. Sponsored by the Idaho Arts Commission.
Filmmakers in attendance: Andrew Garcia, Erin Westfall, Samantha Silva, Jace Wrigley, Travis Swartz, Lydia Sakolowsky
