Filmmakers & Delegates

Welcome to beautiful and historic Missoula, Montana!

Home to scores of writers, musicians, artists, Missoula is a thriving cultural hub, nestled in an idyllic wide valley in the interior rocky mountain west. Somewhere between the romantic American West and the idiosyncratic Pacific Northwest, Missoula is a unique town that somehow feels small and expansive at the same time.

Missoula is nicknamed the “Garden City,” in reference to the large number of orchard homes that once lined its periphery and an extensive vegetable and flower garden owned by Cyrus and William McWhirk that formed the eastern entrance to the city. Though founded as a lumber and agricultural center as well as a trading post, the basis of Missoula’s modern economy is the University of Montana, government, healthcare, tourism, and the service industry.
