Missoula, Montana September 25 - 27, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have rescheduled the Missoula 48HFP from the original May dates to September 25 - 27, 2020.

The COVID-19 virus has affected events all around the globe and we face an unknown time frame for how long closures and quarantines will stay in effect. We have made a commitment to protect the health of our filmmakers and the general public by deciding to reschedule our events to help prevent any further outbreak of the virus.
