Montana's International Film Festival is continuing to grow, this year attracting one of the most important films in the genre.

Earlier this evening, the Montana premiere of China's biggest box office success in history kicked off the festival. Monster Hunt is a story of different people coming together, highlighting the theme of the event.

Over 40 films from all over the world will premier throughout the weekend. Some of them are created by kids for kids. The festival provides Montana kids and families the opportunity to watch films produced from a different perspective. Festival officials and international film makers agree that the opportunity for kids to experience other cultures sparks their interest in the world.

"Anything that sparks the imagination of kids is, is, kind of relevant, uh, to spark their interest, and uh, travel, food, culture, animals, that's uh... Haha," Producer and Director of Turtle Tale Luc Campeau said.

"The festival is about the child in all of us. It celebrates creativity, and connection, and learning about the human-ness of everyone, what makes us human, and the human-ness of people in other countries," Founder of Montana International Children’s Film Festival Christy Ann Brown said.

Adapting to new environments is the theme of Campeau's Turtle Tale. It's told from the perspective of turtles in a national park in Florida. It's one of many films showing at the Silver Theater tomorrow.

The festival will be at the University of Montana on Sunday to help celebrate the International Culture and Food Festival.
