Mountainfilm 2010: Where We’re Going to Get Down + Dirty

The EP crew is Telluride-bound with our latest film Flathead Wild! We’re psyched to be a part of the awesome line up of films this year, but what makes the festival so awesome is the experience and all of the good folks you get to connect with while you’re there.

We’re seriously stoked for iLCP’s 12SHOTS reception and karaoke night… We have a sweet serenade all ready to go! And shameless promo here: don’t miss Flathead Wild! on the big screen this Friday at 9:15pm at Masons Theatre.

So, here’s a kick-ass list of where we’re planning on getting down and dirty at this year.

Oh, and we’re hitching our way down, so if you see a couple of handsome fellas (see right) on the side of the road, we’d be much obliged with a ride!
