As summer cools down the Bozeman Film Society is heating up!

On Saturday, August 23rd the BFS jumps starts the 2014/2015 Season with "Screen On The Green," Bozeman's annual outdoor film screening on the Emerson's spacious west lawn. SOG14 is the perfect way to kick off another incredible year of award-winning independent film!

Indoor shows start flickering on Thursday, September 18th and run continuously every 2-3 weeks in the Emerson Art Center's 700 seat Crawford Theater through June 2015. As a fan, you can expect important, original film screenings you won't find at the multiplex, along with special events and guest speakers throughout the year.

The Bozeman Film Society continues to bring compelling films to Bozeman with the help of many dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, friends - and the generosity of over 70 area business sponsors. This year's sponsorship drive raised significant funds, which help support programming and keep ticket prices affordable. Check out the Sponsor link on our website and let these generous businesses know you appreciate their support of quality cinema! Stay tuned for news about our fall programming - and "Keep 'em flickering!"
