As Fall arrives and the days become cooler, the BFS (formerly BFF) has been busy scheduling the best new films to screen for Bozeman's cinephiles and thinking about our future plans in this digital age.

As the Bozeman Film Society enters it's 36th year, the film industry has entered a new era of digital distribution. After decades showing first run films on 35 mm projectors, we must now modernize our equipment. Cinema is now almost entirely a digital medium and few new releases are available on celluloid film. This is quickly rendering our vintage 35 mm projection equipment obsolete.

To show first run films will require us to upgrade all our equipment. We need to purchase both an industry-standard "digital reader" and a new high-definition Digitally Compliant Projector (DCI). Already we are feeling the pinch. Our lack of technology is already limiting our ability to bring some great films we want to bring to Bozeman. Unless we modernize our projection equipment very soon, the Bozeman Film Society will become a quaint but obsolete organization, much like our lovingly restored 35 mm projector.

Our goal is to acquire a new Digitally Compliant Projector this season. Plans are already underway to make this happen but we need YOUR support! Stay tuned for details on how you can help the us "Keep 'em flickering" for years to come!

Thank you!

The Bozeman Film Society presents a special Halloween-time screening of the 1922 classic, silent horror film "Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror" with live, original soundtrack written and performed by Missoula duo Next Door Prison Hotel. One of the silent era's most influential masterpieces, Nosferatu's eerie, gothic feel -- and a chilling performance from Max Shrek as the vampire -- set the template for the horror films that followed.Musicians John Sporman and Travis Yost will bring the quintessential Dracula film to life with their modern, atmospheric score. Sporman will be playing keyboards, cello, guitar and saw, along with a well-stocked board of effects he uses to manipulate his playing. Travis Yost, meanwhile, will be switching between guitar, bass and drums during the 85-minute score. The evening will be opened with an introduction by MSU German Studies Professor Patricia Simpson. Silent films were meant to be enjoyed with live music, so don't miss this unique showing of the beautifully, creepy "Nosferatu" on the big screen on Wednesday, October 29th!
