POLSON — The show must go on but with extra precautions in place for this year's Flathead Lake International Cinemafest (FLIC).

This is the festival's ninth year and will feature 54 films from around the world at the Showboat Cinema, and the cinema has its own Cinema Safe COVID protocols to keep you safe.

Filmmakers from Ukraine to France will be there for a Q and A section after each feature film. But if you are worried about going to the theater you can also watch films virtually.

FLIC's Director David King says having this festival each year creates a way for the lovers of film to get together during the colder months.

“FLIC is one of the best things to happen in a community like this because it brings us together in the middle of winter and it brings filmmakers and lovers of film together it's an opportunity to talk with filmmakers,” said King.

The Flathead Lake International Cinemafest is scheduled to run from Jan. 29 until Jan. 31. Click here for additional information about the event.
