Filmmaker Robert Moberg is thrilled to report that CBC has picked up his documentary film Bighorns at the Junction which premiered to a full house at the Gibraltar Room in Williams Lake on Feb. 20.
He says he has a three-year contract with CBC for the film but is not sure yet when it will be aired.
“I will still have festival rights so we are entering some select festivals,” Moberg says. “They liked the film because of the personal side of the story.
“Obviously I am very happy about this new development and can’t think of a better place to have my work shown.”
He says making a film is always very challenging and finding a place for it to be seen even more so.
“Having ones work recognized in this way is very encouraging,” Moberg says. “I am also happy to bring attention to the Bighorns and people of our spectacular region. We live in a very special place.”
In an earlier interview Moberg said the film started out being about why the sheep are disappearing in the Junction but also became a personal story about getting your kids out into nature and why we need the wilderness.
