About the World View Film Series
In the fall of 2018, Arts Missoula GLOBAL 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.
The film series provides a “Window to the World” for Missoula that is FREE and open to the public!
Past seasonal themes included:
Spring 2023 – Cultures In Love (Films about cultures in love)
Fall 2022 – Cultures Healing (Films about cultures recovering from trauma)
Spring 2022 – Cultures in Words (Films about writing and writers) With post-film discussion hosted by Marisa Diaz-Waian, from Merlin CCC.

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. 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 Humanities Montana and Arts Missoula GLOBAL and moderated by members of these three organizations.
Spring 2020 – The Roxy Theater was closed, due to COVID-19.
Fall 2019 – Cultures on Display (Films about art in movies)
Spring 2019 – Cultures in Harmony (Films about music in movies)
Fall 2018 – Cultures in Motion (Films about dance in movies)
