Confluence Films’ ‘Providence’ to air simultaneously in venues around the world


Bozeman’s Confluence Films will release its fifth feature-length fly-fishing film, “Providence,” on Saturday, Oct. 15, in synchronized screenings in dozens of locations worldwide.

In “Providence,” Confluence Film’s Chris Patterson and Jim Klug, Yellow Dog Flyfishing’s Camille Egdorf, and South African guides Gerhard Laubscher and Tim Babich return to the Indian Ocean’s remote and uninhabited Seychelles Atoll of Providence for the first time since the waters were closed to all fishermen and boat access in 2010, due to the threats and activities of pirates operating out of Somalia.

In October 2015, the team spent three weeks exploring the atoll and fishing for multiple flats species including giant trevally, bluefin trevally, bumphead parrotfish, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, milkfish and more.

“Providence” is a story of adventure, piracy, challenging fish, the history of the area and untouched flats.

Rather than setting up multiple-date screenings in different cities, Confluence has planned a single, synchronized world premiere that will take place as far as Buenos Aires and the British Indian Ocean Territory.

Confluence has invited conservation groups, fly shops, clubs and other fly-fishing entities to organize and host a premiere event, allowing people all across the country and throughout the world the opportunity to be among the first to view “Providence.”

This synchronized premiere concept also enables Confluence to promote these collective events as “the biggest single night of fly-fishing film in the world.”

“Providence” will be shown in Big Sky at Lone Peak Cinema on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 4:30 and 7 p.m. and in Bozeman at The Ellen Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. Visit for more information.
