About Us:

The International Wildlife Film Festival, LTD is a501c3 based in Missoula Montana.  Our mission is to promote awareness, knowledge and understanding of wildlife, habitat, people and nature through excellence in film, television and other media. The mission is fulfilled through outreach and education, and includes the following programs:

 - IWFF, our annual wildlife and conservation themed film festival

 - The Roxy's community cinema program, a year round calendar of community-centric films and events

 - The Montana Film Academy, specializing in youth filmmaking and media education.

Throughout the year we serve a diverse, all-ages population - our constituency ranges from grade school children to elders. Our programming offers a rich variety of possibilities, from wildlife and environmental film and new and classic fiction and documentaries, to live music, poetry, performance and other cultural offerings.

The IWFF began in 1977 at the University of Montana. We have produced an annual wildlife themed film festival each year since 1977, making us the first and longest running event of its kind. In 2002 we purchased the historic Roxy Theater to act as the anchor/home for the festival. While we presented the annual event each year, and some occasional programming, the true potential for the venue was not realized until the summer of 2013 when we launched our year-round screening series and began extensive collaboration with university, business and community.

We are a non-profit that serves other non-profits by providing a venue and a gateway for the community. The Roxy is a unique venue with incredible resources including three cinema screens with HD projection, state-of-the-art sound systems, two stages and amenities ideal for conferences, film festivals and educational events.
