The Roxy Board of Directors invite you to a special sneak peek event to launch the 44th annual International Wildlife Film Festival. The invitation with more details is attached. Ami Vitale, who lives here in Missoula and is one of the three final judges for the Festival this year will be on-hand to share her "can't miss picks" for this year's Festival and talk about her short film, Shaba, before we are treated to a private screening of the film.

Shaba: In the mountains of northern Kenya, a Samburu community is doing something that has never been done before, building a sanctuary for orphaned elephants to rehabilitate them back to the wild. The project is not just changing attitudes about elephants, it's changing attitudes about women too; the secret to the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary’s success is the special bond between a group of women keepers and one special elephant named Shaba.

This is a special kick-off event for the 44th annual International Wildlife Film Festival.
