The 13th annual Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF) is happening! The Missoula, MT event runs from Feb 19-28 and packs enough activities, workshops and movies to keep film makers and film appreciators busy!

BSDFF has become the biggest cinema event in Montana, drawing upwards of 20,000 people and receiving more than 1,400 film entries from all over the world.

The festival is showing more over 140 nonfiction films and over 100 artists at the Top Hat, Roxy, the Wilma and Crystal Theaters, allowing for the one of a kind experience that only Missoula’s downtown has to offer. BSDFF offers a setting for filmmakers to premiere new work and for audiences to see innovative new films, as well as classics in the genre.

The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival is a program of the Big Sky Film Institute, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The mission of the Big Sky Film Institute is to celebrate and promote the art of non-fiction filmmaking, and to encourage media literacy by fostering public understanding and appreciation of documentary film.
