A local team from the Frozen River Film Festival will travel to Telluride, Colo. Memorial Day weekend to select films for the upcoming 2014 festival in Winona.
FRFF’s quest is to select films that will be shown at the annual Frozen River festival in 2014. The two festivals partner with each other, allowing Frozen River to choose some of the best independent documentaries from around the world. This is the seventh year FRFF has sent its representatives to Mountainfilm. One-third of Frff’s films come from MountainFilm.
While there, the team will be able to participate in all sorts of events, from ice cream socials to art exhibits. But most importantly, the team is looking to secure films for FRFF that are shown at Mountainfilm. By doing so, FRFF is able to secure the screening and media rights for films they may not be able to otherwise.
The team looks forward to connecting with filmmakers and the up-and-coming talent. “Given the caliber of Mountainfilm, it’s a great time to connect with many prominent activists.” says Festival Director, Crystal Hegge
