The Bozeman Film Celebration presents the BZN FILM RODEO, in 

Helena, Montana 

Wednesaday, October 24, 2018

Join us on Wednesday, October 24 from 5:30-8 PM at the Lewis & Clark Library in Helena, MT, to enjoy the BZN Film Rodeo, the best of the 2018 BZN International Film Festival.  This event is free to the public, and seating will be first-come, first-serve.


As the fourth stop on BZN’s grand film tour of the Northwest, the evening will consist of a pre-screening reception, where you’ll be able to chat with some of the filmmakers.
The films begin at 6 PM.

The screening will feature Mankiller, the BZN Spirit-Award Winning film. Running 73-minutes, this documentary feature tells the inspiring story of the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, Wilma Mankiller, and the lasting impact her powerful, peaceful approach has had in communities across the United States.

The evening will also offer 3 of the 2018 BZN award-winning short films:

Helena-native and MSU-grad Colter Olmstead will speak about the process of the making of Drawback, the beautiful story of his sister’s experience as a bowhunter — who will also be in attendance.

Special thanks to the Lewis & Clark Library for helping promote and sponsor this screening. Any donations will go to the L&C Library Foundation.
