Montana Fishing Film Fest Coming to UM

February 23, 2017

MISSOULA – Join anglers from across the area for an evening of homegrown fly-fishing films at the Montana Fishing Film Fest on Sunday, March 5, at the University of Montana’s Dennison Theatre.

Doors open at 4 p.m. and the event starts at 5 p.m. Tickets cost $12, but students with a valid Griz Card pay $10. Tickets are available in advance at Missoulian Angler, Grizzly Hackle, Blackfoot River Outfitters, as well as at the venue the day of the show.

According to the website, the film fest is created by serious Montana anglers, for serious Montana anglers. It focuses primarily on Montana films but is open to other trout-fishing films that exemplify the notion of fishing close to home, wherever that may be. To the event creators, fishing films are about having heart and having a good time, and then wanting to go out there and do it for yourself.
