Press Release- Missoula, MT – Along with the customary expressions of awe, wonder, empathy and outrage, the theaters of the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF) will resound with a heavier-than-normal dose of laughter in 2014. BSDFF is pleased to announce a focus on comedy for the upcoming festival, with that theme supported by a live show from famed standup comedian Tig Notaro at the Wilma Theater on Wednesday, Feb 19. Opening for Notaro will be Missoula native Chris Fairbanks.
“Documentary films are not normally associated with humor, so we thought we’d remind people that non-fiction films can be extremely funny,” says BSDFF founder Doug Hawes-Davis. “Of course, the festival’s mission remains to showcase the best documentaries regardless of genre, so we’ll still have all the hard-hitting films our audiences have come to expect.”
Indeed, comedy films will make up a thematically-linked “strand” for the 2014 festival, consisting of documentaries that take an inherently humorous approach to their subjects, as well as films about comedians themselves. The highly-anticipated annual retrospective – a body of work from a single director, accompanied by a guest appearance from the filmmaker – will also assume a comedic theme.
Fans of the festival can now take advantage of an early-bird special on passes. Through December 31, All-Access Passes and All-Screening Passes are both $25 off normal prices. All-Access Passes, which grant the bearer admission to all film screenings as well as all VIP parties and events, are $225, and All-Screening Passes can be purchased for only $100. Passes can be purchased through the BSDFF website.
Held in the idyllic mountain town of Missoula, Montana, the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival has grown into the largest documentary film festival in the American West, the largest cinema event in the state, and a must-see destination for filmmakers and documentary devotees the world over. The 2014 festival will be held from February 15th through the 23rd.
