Festival Guests

Mike Steinberg, Roxy ED and Directors Alex & Andrew Smith talking about Winter Is Blood on the MTFF stage.

Guest filmmakers fall for MTFF, the Roxy Theater, and Montana every time….

“Missoula, Montana: big skies and big hearts. Montana Film Festival was another beautiful reminder that movies bring people together, and people make great movies!  Such a cool film community in MT – we WILL shoot here one day. Thanks, MTFF, for having Hellbender – and me! – Hellbender filmmaker Toby Poser, @ the 2021 MTFF

Visit Montana and attend this local film festival that celebrates indie film, whether it is MT-made, feels like a Missoula story, or is this year’s festival gem. The MTFF is run out of the charming art-house Roxy Theater on the hip strip. Fall is an ideal time to settle into a long weekend of movies for people who love movies. Guest filmmakers have fond tales of movie trivia, Lolo Hot spring dips, and warm welcomes.
