Montana-made films get red carpet treatment at Cannes Film Festival

May 15, 2018View for printing

Montana landscapes and stories are commanding screens and collecting positive reviews at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

"Wildlife" and "Rainmaker" - both made in Montana - received invitations to the prestigious festival, which continues through Saturday in Cannes, France.

"Wildlife" was partially filmed on location in and around Livingston, while "Rainmaker" was written and produced by Missoula filmmaker Katherine Cronyn and was filmed in Montana by a mostly Montana crew.

The films' selection created "great exposure" for Montana, said Montana Film Commissioner Allison Whitmer.
