Element Film Festival is an annual student filmmaking event in Bozeman, Montana.
It began as a way for filmmakers of the world's only MFA in Science and Natural History Fimmaking 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 understanding of science and the natural world through film. We accept films from the traditional to the transformative, from the informational to the inspirational.
Past Element films and filmmakers have won numerous awards and recognitions, including National Student Emmys and Tellies. These films also appear at other highly competitive international film festivals.
The festival provides a venue for students from around the world to showcase their films that merge science and art. The festival will be held at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture in downtown Bozeman, allowing student works to be showcased in a thriving community of filmmakers and environmental enthusiasts.
