‘Dark Money’ film shines light on Montana elections, funding

A documentary that emerges as a political whodunit with Montana in the spotlight is among the films featured in this year’s 15th annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, which runs Feb. 16-25 in Missoula.

A free showing of director Kimberly Reed’s “Dark Money” will be 7 p.m. Friday at The Wilma theater. Gov. Steve Bullock, who was attorney general when some of these events unfolded, is expected to attend. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by reporter Charles S. Johnson.

There will also be paid viewings on Feb. 19 and Feb. 25.
