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!

"A half-live-action, half-animated headtrip that throws Robin Wright into a dizzying showbiz paradigm shift." Tom Russo - Boston Globe

More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with The Princess Bride, an aging actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. Through a deal brokered by her loyal, longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston), her alias will be controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son and her digitized character will stay forever young. Twenty years later, under the creative vision of the studio's head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright's digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, she is invited to take part in "The Congress" convention as she makes her comeback straight into the world of future fantasy cinema.
