Documentary moviemakers come to Big Sky to make the Big Pitch. Each ensuing year brings new features into the fold of BSDFF’s sprawling DocShop conference, with 2017’s Tribeca Film Institute IF/ Then Shorts pitch dishing out $20,000 in production funding to work-in-progress shorts pitches. Moviemakers also have the unique opportunity to present their films at classrooms in the surrounding area, and can reach and engage with up to 5,000 students across Montana.
