The film is being shown all around the state this month.
There will be a special Idaho Falls screening Wednesday, July 13, of “Destination Idaho,” a 65-minute “hybrid” documentary by award-winning filmmaker Karen Day.

The screening at 7 p.m. at University Place is open to the public and free. Seating is first-come first-served.

The film was produced by Airstream Adventures Northwest, Idaho Historical Society, the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation and many tourism partners statewide. According to the press release, it is intended to be “a visual journey that will inform and inspire audiences to value and visit the great Gem State by presenting the best things people don’t know about Idaho.”

It includes personal interviews and historical footnotes, offering a family-friendly picture of the Gem State beyond stereotypes and lovely landscapes. North to south, east to west this film shows why Idaho and Idahoans are unique. The original soundtrack is even by Idaho musicians.

Production was financed by enrollment of State, Federal and private stakeholders, including Idaho State Historical Society, Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, Idaho’s National Parks, Boise CVB, Sun Valley Resort and Shore Lodge to name a few among 50 participating statewide entities.
