4th Annual Clips Beer and Film Tour Returns to Missoula July 19

Clips Beer and Film Tour
New Belgium Brewing's 4th Annual Clips Beer and Film Tour (formerly Clips of Faith) returns to Missoula on Friday July 19 at 8:00 p.m. Films will be shown at dark. 

This unique outdoor film festival only travels to 21 hand-picked cities across the country. In 2012, the tour raised nearly $118,000 dollars for non-profit organizations and showcased films to 16,400 attendees. 

“Clips combines our love of hand-crafted beers with independent films while giving people a chance to enjoy an evening in the park,” says Christie Catania, Clips Manager-at-Large. “As for films, there’s something for everyone from comedies to short documentaries, and the beautiful thing is that you’re drinking a beer under the stars, watching films and supporting your community.”

For each of its four years in Missoula, this event has served as a primary fundraiser for the Bike/Walk Alliance for Missoula (BWAM). Last year, the Missoula event drew 750 attendees and raised $4,700 for BWAM. 

Not only a fun film festival showing 20 fantastic short films, New Belgium Brewing will be bringing beer, and lots of it!
