    Default GHOSTS OF THE WEST - award winning documentary film

    Hello all!

    After eight years of research and travel plus another two of post-production, the documentary feature film GHOSTS OF THE WEST is finally coming to audiences this year. Shot entirely on motion picture film, the movie offers viewers a front row seat on a tour through the vanishing history of the Old West.

    On September 29, 2012, Colorado-based independent production company Knight Sky Pictures held two test screenings of GHOSTS OF THE WEST at the historic Park Theatre in Estes Park, Colorado. The turnout caught everyone by surprise as one of the largest crowds of the theatre’s summer season began lining up outside the box office an hour in advance of showtime. Theatre employees even had to guard the one-sheets against theft by the patrons.

    On February 16, 2013, a panel of movie- and television-industry executives, film critics, and academics gave GHOSTS OF THE WEST the Best Documentary Award at the annual Filmed in Utah Award ceremony. (Even though it had been shot across the West.)

    Finally, just last week, we launched a "kickstarter" campaign to raise funds to cover the costs of a limited theatrical roadshow, a DVD release and the usage rights for the remaining historical images used in the film. (It's also the only way to get a DVD of the film until the roadshow is over.) After just 9 days, it's reached 64% of its funding goal!

    The kickstarter site has a brief history of the film from inception to its award win and also includes the movie trailer:

    The trailer can also be seen on IMDb, Vimeo, and YouTube. Those interested can also head on over to the film's official website at to see the trailer, look over the production stills gallery, and learn more about the cast and crew. And finally, there's where all news and updates are posted as they happen.
