We’re so excited to be heading down to Missoula next week for the World Premier of ‘Iniskim-Return of the Buffalo’.  This is certainly the year of the buffalo as we’re one of three films about buffalo that got shortlisted for the Big Sky Award.

‘Iniskim came about because we knew we needed to celebrate the return of the buffalo.  Soon after that I had a chance meeting with master puppeteer Pete Balkwill. The rest is history.’ Amethyst First Rider- producer of Iniskim-Return of the Buffalo.
