For those in the know, Bozeman is a hub of activity when it comes to film. Since 1960, Montana State University has been turning out highly creative and technically savvy students who go on to pursue successful careers. The founder of the department, Jack Stonnell, had a strong vision for film in our community and in 1978 he went on to establish the Bozeman Film Festival, now known as the Bozeman Film Society. The organization consisted of a group of professors and community members who banded together and started showing American classics at the beautiful Rialto theater.
