Element Film Festival is an annual event in Bozeman, Montana. It began as a way for student filmmakers of the world’s only MFA program in science and natural history filmmaking to showcase their work to the community. 2010 marked the first year that this festival was open to student filmmakers worldwide and it was a success. We look for innovative student filmmakers that strive to improve our unertanding of science and the natural world through film.

Past Element films and filmmakers have gone on to win numerous awards and recognitions, including National Student Emmys and Tellies; as well as showcased at other highly competitive international film festivals.

This year’s festival will take place on November 4 at the Emerson Cultural Center in Bozeman, Montana.
