World View Film Festival Fall 2018
August 20th, PINA in review
“Arts Missoula’s New International Film Series Packs Roxy Theater To The Max
The newest service within Arts Missoula, Global and Cultural Affairs, kicked-off the World View Film Series on Monday, August 20th, with the screening of the German documentary Pina, the first of four films in this fall international film series. A 70-seat auditorium at the Roxy was packed with over 85 people, clearly showing the strong community support for this “window to the world” opportunity that is part of the many services Arts Missoula’s Global and Cultural Affairs provides for the people in and around the Garden City.
The Roxy management brought in folding chairs to accommodate enthusiasts for this new foreign film series in the back of the theater. The entire series is free to the public, made possible through 100% sponsorship by local businesses.
The audience was super energized to watch the Wim Wenders documentary about German choreographer and dance artist Pina Bausch. Joy French, founder and artistic director of Missoula’s Bare Bait Dance Company, provided an introduction and a demonstration on stage and engaged the audience in a dance warm-up, before the movie started.
The next films in the World View Film Series are War/Dance from Uganda on Monday, September 17th, followed by Hip Hop-Eration from New Zealand on Monday, October 15th, before closing the fall series with Dancing in Jaffa on Monday, November 19th. All films in this series are FREE! See the official World View Film Poster here!
We would love to welcome you as our guest at these screenings this fall!” – Udo Fluck, Director of Globlal and Cultural Affairs at Arts Missoula
