About the World View Film Series
In the 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!
Past seasonal themes included:
Fall 2018 – Cultures in Motion (Films about dance in movies)
Spring 2019 – Cultures in Harmony (Films about music in movies)
Fall 2019 – Cultures on Display (Films about art in movies)
In 2020, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we pivoted and offered the World View Film Series as a virtual event, with increased access, by partnering with the Missoula Public Library and their streaming service Kanopy, which is free and accessible with a Missoula Public Library card at: https://missoula.kanopy.com/. A post-film community conversation on Zoom was offered, following each film, inspired by questions raised in the movie. The conversations had the aim of creating a space for thoughtful dialogue, reflection, and sharing. The post-film community conversations on Zoom were hosted by the Missoula Public Library, Humanities Montana, and Global & Cultural Affairs and moderated by members of these three organizations.
Fall 2020 – Cultures at the Table (Films about food in movies) Accompanying Cooking Demonstration: Channa Masala with Sarj Patel
Spring 2021 – Cultures Coming Together (Films about freedom and democracy)
