Now entering its fourteenth year, the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (BSDFF) is established as Montana’s premier cinema event and the largest documentary film festival in the American West. The 2017 festival runs Friday, February 17 through Sunday February 26 at The Wilma, The Roxy, The Silver Theatre and the Hellgate Elks Lodge. BSDFF lights up Missoula with over 150 extraordinary non-fiction films from across the globe, gathering hundreds of filmmakers, industry professionals, and nearly 20,000 highly engaged filmgoers attending screenings, live events, educational programs and film industry forums. Our mission is to bring stories from across the globe to our beautiful mountain town, create a vibrant, quality event that gathers our engaged community, and expand the knowledge and conversation around issues that matter. Join us for a storytelling journey including a wide array of exceptional documentaries, opening night with HBO, retrospectives with Daniel Junge and EyeSteelFilm, multimedia dance-film performance, a virtual reality experience, the DocShop filmmaker’s forum and closing night with Showtime.
