EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival is the premier global venue for award-winning equine films.  These include documentaries, features, narrative and non-fiction, news, even music videos with a great story, and new media focused on all things equine. 

EQUUS INTERNATIONAL, founded in 2011, was the first international equine film festival, launched as an outreach and education project of Horse Haven Montana, an equine rescue adoption, and education organization, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

EQUUS INTERNATIONAL through media, strives to educate, inspire and advance equine welfare and well-being.  The event, which is now integrated into the annual international equine conference, takes place at the Montana Center for Horsemanship in Dillon, Montana, featuring dynamic panels, speakers, special presentations, and workshops and events bringing awareness and understanding to the powerful, life-changing relationship between horse and human.

EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival is the only international event of its kind, headquartered in the heart of the American West.  We can however, share and bring this event to towns and cities across the nation and around the world.

EIFF strives to spur international awareness, appreciation and knowledge of the world of the horse (and other equines) by recognizing and celebrating the talent, ideas and creativity of film, television and multi-media artists.  We promote, celebrate and highlight the significance of the equine-human bond; and give a voice to worldwide efforts to improve the welfare and well-being of our equine partners. The horse-human relationship contributes to our well-being.

To further spread this message worldwide, EIFF partners with organizations and other entities, helping to bring these magnificent and important equine films and issues to audiences worldwide.  We accomplish this through the EIFF “On the Trail” Post-Festival Tours.  Please contact us to learn more or to arrange a tour in your hometown.

EQUUS INTERNATIONAL Film Festival features a wide range of media programming on stories, topics and issues that bring awareness and understanding to the equine arena. We celebrate the magnificence of the horse and those who value, treasure and devote their lives to giving a voice to horses and other equines on a global scale.
