In fall of 2018, Global and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with The Roxy Theater, inaugurated the World View Film Series, which screens four international movies (either foreign productions, or with a focus on a country abroad) in the fall and four in the spring of each year. A five-person committee selects a seasonal focus and the corresponding films.
Udo Fluck hosts the evenings, every second Monday of the month, at 7 PM at The Roxy Theater, located at 718 S. Higgins Avenue. Local artist Courtney Blazon designs the official poster for each fall and spring season.
The film series provides a “Window to the World” for Missoula that is FREE and open to the public!
