- It’s hard to learn how to form silver and engrave it from a YouTube video. Mastering the ins-and-outs of being a silversmith requires learning from someone in person. Expressive Idaho's Olivia Weitz visits an apprentice silversmith in Twin Falls to learn about this Western tradition.

- The Idaho Horror Film Festival is coming to Boise for its fifth year of terrifying attendees and connecting developing filmmakers. In addition to screenings, the four-day festival will feature workshops and presentations to help Idaho filmmakers cultivate industry connections and hone their skills. Idaho Matters speaks with a festival organizer and a filmmaker about what makes horror films so alluring.
