Montana Fishing Film Festival
Saturday, April 4th, 2015, April 4, 7PM @ The Roxy
Cost: $10 Advance $12 Door
The Montana Fishing Film Fest is an event created by serious Montana Fishermen, for serious Montana Fishermen. I call the beautiful Missoula valley home, and spend countless hours both recreationally and professionally on the moving waters of this great state. This event focuses primarily on films about Montana but is open to other trout fishing films that exemplify the notion of fishing close to home, wherever that home may be. If you are an up and coming filmmaker please do not hesitate to make a submission. To us, fishing films are about having heart and having a good time, not necessarily about having a fancy camera.
