The 2017 In the Footsteps of Norman Maclean Festival is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Robert Redford's iconic film, A River Runs Through It in a 3-day festival September 8-10, 2017 in Seeley Lake and Missoula, MT. Released in 1992, A River Runs Through It showcases the Blackfoot River and the Maclean Festival aims to do the same. The Festival's Sunday's program, From the Book to the Big Screen, will be at Missoula's Roxy and Wilma Theaters with members of the film's creative team: actor Tom Skerritt, screenwriter Richard Friedenberg, producer Patrick Markey and many more. Friday's program, The Story of the Blackfoot, features tours of the Blackfoot Valley's river conservation, Norman Maclean's favorite Blackfoot River fishing holes, and keynote speaker Richard Manning, author of One Round River. Saturday's program brings many of Montana's best writers together to speak about their contribution to Annick Smith's compilation of stories about the Blackfoot titled Headwaters. This festival is sponsored by Alpine Artisans and presented by the Montana Film Office. Also funded in part by a grant from Humanities Montana, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Montana Department of Commerce, Seeley Lake Community Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
