Description

Welcome to the 6th Annual Montana Film Festival. Watch anytime, anywhere October 8-11, 2020. 

Montana Film Festival is a respite from the market and industry of film festivals. We celebrate and highlight emergent talents and new points of view, importing perspective and representation, with special celebration of Montana's growing film community.

Founded within the heart of a non-profit cinema, our highest aim is to enrich our audiences through the art and craft of narrative independent film.

Montana Film Festival is based in beautiful Missoula, Montana at the convergence of five mountain ranges, and this year is brought to you virtually.
