As a judge, David finds it great fun to discover little gems as he and his fellow judges review scores of FLIC entries each year. There are always surprises and spirited discussions on the part of the judges, whose tastes vary much like those found around water-coolers the world over.
Karr Bergmann is the General Manager of the Red Lion Ridgewater Inn & Suites in Polson, Montana. He moved to Polson to help open the hotel in 2015 and quickly fell in love with the town and surrounding area. Karr studied literature at East Tennessee State University and has always enjoyed cinema covering a broad spectrum of genres, cultures, and subjects. Karr also serves on the Boards of Directors for Mission Mountain Enterprises and Glacier Country Tourism. When he isn’t working, Karr enjoys sailing, kayaking, and hiking with his wife. After working with FLiC for the past few years as a sponsor and enthused attendee, Karr is excited to join his fellow judges for FLIC 2018.
Megan Pope is a rich addition to the FLIC judging panel. While her work as Assistant Operations Supervisor at Glacier Bank may involve numbers and critical problem solving, Megan’s avocational passions lie in summiting far off peaks, paddling down swift rivers, and fishing Montana’s Gallatin River. Having always dreamed of adventure and pioneering, Megan moved from the big city in 2011 and hasn’t looked back. She participates in a variety of community events and is a lively ambassador for the Polson Chamber of Commerce. Megan’s interests vary greatly, from conservation and anthropology to history, architecture, and cinema. With a background in theatre and public speaking, she has an appreciation for all great works of art. Megan looks forward to infusing her unique perspectives and enthused dialogue into the FLIC judging process, and can’t wait for FLIC 2019.
