Kiddomatic is a film festival hosted by The Roxy Theater, Missoula’s community theater. Formerly known as the Montana International Children’s Film Festival founded in 2011 by Christy Ann Brown, this festival celebrates the kid in all of us. Now overseen by The Roxy and supported by the Global and Cultural Affairs of Arts Missoula program, this festival boasts a collection of international films to inspire our youngest community members to become global citizens and the next cinephiles.
Water Flows Together elevates the importance of acknowledging Indigenous land in outdoor recreation through the voice of Colleen Cooley, one of the few female Diné (Navajo) river guides on the San Juan River. The film is a meditation on the challenges Colleen and her community have faced, the kinship she has with the San Juan River, and the unique opportunities her role as a river guide affords as she seeks to create positive change.
