Your Bozeman-Butte Film School Alternative

Are you obsessed with the idea of making movies? Do you live in Bozeman or Butte? Well, then you’re in the perfect position to make your dreams come true. Bozeman-Butte Film Connection is the future of the Movie Industry and you’re about jump in!

Bozeman-Butte Film Connection pairs young aspiring filmmakers with working filmmakers through a mutually beneficial apprenticeship (externship). You have to face the facts. The traditional film school route doesn’t get you anywhere. It’s dogmatic and archaic. And it only breeds filmmakers who produce work steeped in the established storytelling conventions.

Do you really wanna be the next Michael Bay? No, you have an original voice and you have things to say. The Film Connection knows that you’re a filmmaker who wants to change the game and we want to help.

Our course is revolutionary in that it was made by filmmakers for filmmakers. It’s a school that will get you in the room with the people that you need to impress to have a career. What more can you ask for, right?
