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 Overnighters

USA
In English
Documentary/Drama :: Rated PG-13 :: 90 minutes

A modern-day Grapes of Wrath, award-winning documentary The Overnighters is an intimate portrait of job-seekers desperately chasing the broken American Dream to the tiny oil boom town of Williston, North Dakota. With the town lacking the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, a local pastor starts the controversial "overnighters" program, allowing down-and-out workers a place to sleep at the church. His well-meaning project immediately runs into resistance with his community, forcing the clergyman to make a decision which leads to profound consequences that he never imagined.
