Missoula’s CINE film festival hitting stride at the right time

October 18, 2010 6:15 am • By JOE NICKELL of the Missoulian

Seven years ago, the International Wildlife Media Center embarked on an experiment of sorts: a new film festival, separate from its well-established International Wildlife Film Festival, this one focused on the intersection between humans and the natural world.

Producing a separate film festival proved plenty of work, as staffers at the small Missoula-based nonprofit labored to find films that fit the fest. This year, that work was compounded by ill-timed staffing changes over the summer. But something fortunate happened at just the right time: CINE hit its stride.

“It really seems to have taken on a life of its own this year,” said Janet Rose, director of the International Wildlife Media Center, who noted that this year’s festival received in excess of 100 entries. “This whole concept of films that focus on important critical contemporary issues related to wildlife and the world around us – that seems to be hitting its stride. There’s so much going on in the world, so many issues that people are intensely focused on, and now people are coming to us because they now know that this is an important venue to share films on those topics. … The festival is definitely carving its niche.”
