Catching up with award-winning International Wildlife Film Fest screenings we missed during the pandemic's live programming break

Sons of Enkai

Directed by Nacho Ruiz
FINALIST! IWFF Best Human Wildlife Interaction
In this roller coaster ride between Africa and Asia, two first-time filmmakers embed themselves on the front-lines of the rhinoceros genocide. Carving out six months for the project, the women quickly find themselves immersed in a world far larger and more dangerous than they had imagined, emerging from their odyssey four years later. Run time 1 hour

Bonus short: The Blue Sanctuary

Directed by Colin Ruggiero
One of the most beautiful places on earth is the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park in the Bahamas. Blue Sanctuary offers a glimpse of the trials and successes of the first marine protected area in the Americas and shows how it can be a model for marine conservation efforts everywhere. Run time: 6 min.

WILD FILMS AT THE LIBRARY is a free series of award-winning international wildlife films selected from the International Wildlife Film Festival. The International Wildlife Film Festival was established in 1977 in Missoula, Montana with a mission to promote awareness, knowledge and understanding of wildlife, habitat, people and nature through excellence in film, television and other media.

Due to our pause in live programming during the global pandemic, the Library is now offering some catch-up film opportunities for IWFF award-winning films that we were unable to host as public screenings until now. After the new year, the Library will dive into a lineup of films from the most current festival.
