Helena city commissioner stars in movie 14 years in the making

SIERRA CISTONE for the Missoulian

Long before he became Helena City Commissioner Andy Shirtliff, he was actor and movie producer Andy Shirtliff, and his debut film is set to premiere at The Wilma in Missoula on Saturday night.

After more than a decade of anticipation, “Saving for the Day,” will hit the big screen for its world premiere.

The film is the brainchild of filmmaker and fifth-generation Montanan, John Nilles, who created a “love letter to Missoula.” Indeed, the film is marked by a backdrop of Missoula landscapes and scenes that locals will recognize in a heartbeat. The “M,” Circle Square Second Hand Store and the Ceretana building are just a few of the easily recognizable places that are featured in the film.

“Saving for the Day” will have its world premiere on Saturday, March 11. Doors open at 5 p.m., the show starts at 6. Tickets are $15 in advance.  There will be a red carpet with Montana premiere attire suggested. There will be a Q&A afterward.
