Since 1978, we’ve rallied behind the idea that independent film quickly disperses new ideas, fresh perspectives, culture and art wherever it’s shown and shared. A 501(c)3 non-profit, Bozeman Film Festival, Inc. dba Bozeman Film Society, is deeply grateful for the support we’ve received over the decades, and exhilarated to continue expanding in the future.
