Now entering its seventeenth 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. A prolific 10-day event held every February in Missoula’s historic Wilma Theater and neighboring venues, BSDFF lights up western Montana with over 150 extraordinary films from across the globe. Hundreds of filmmakers, industry professionals, and 20,000 highly engaged filmgoers attend 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.
