Support the IFS by screening titles straight from independent distributors who routinely provide us with interesting movies. By clicking "watch now" below you'll be able to watch a theatrical release and the distributor will then split the proceeds 50/50 with the IFS, which in turn helps buy us time while we wait for the green light to return to Muenzinger Auditorium.
IFS fans can take part in a free live-stream Q&A to discuss "Divine Love" Sunday, November 15th at 6:00 pm MST, with director Gabriel Mascaro ("Neon Bull") and acclaimed U.S. film producer Ted Hope (Good Machine, Amazon Studios). Registration is required in advance for this free Zoom event (sign in from anywhere in the world) at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_49xlkM15S1OxeRdilfmGBA.
In the year 2027, in a dystopian Brazil, a deeply religious woman
uses her position in a notary’s offce to advance her mission to
save struggling couples from divorce. Whilst waiting for a Sign

own marriage that ultimately brings her closer to God.
