The second annual Black Hills Film Festival is gearing up to host hundreds of people that are passionate about filmmaking and films. While millions of people come from across the world to take in the sites like Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Deadwood and Badlands National Park, they’ll now be coming in May from across the globe to take in independent films.
The four-day festival will be held in Hill City and at Crazy Horse Memorial, which is just minutes away from the beautiful mountain town of Hill City.
Returning for the second year in a row to the festival is director Chris Eyre and producer Sean Covel. This year, festival goers will have the opportunity to take acting classes with Alexa Vega and hear a presentation from Senior Vice President of Production Services at Warner Bros., Norman Barnett.
Fantastic films will be showcased throughout the four-day festival, including several Native American films like “A Good Day to Die,” with Dennis Banks.
