SAVING THE BURG
Official Early Acceptance - Semi Finalist
An award-winning filmmaker was an eyewitness and investor in one of the great economic revival stories in recent Montana history. In “Saving the Burg” Jim Jenner details the last quarter century in tiny Philipsburg, MT. Once a booming mining town it almost became a ghost town in the 1980’s. Then a grassroots local effort gradually restored the historic downtown and earned national recognition for reinventing the local economy. A fascinating and heartwarming story of an historic community comeback.
