Bozeman Film Society Presents: Dream Big: Engineering Our World

The Ellen Theatre

Upcoming Dates & Times


Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Through the eyes of four engineers, Dream Big (originally produced for IMAX Theaters) takes viewers on a journey of discovery, from the world’s tallest building and a bridge higher than the clouds to a solar car race across Australia, and to underwater robots and smart, sustainable cities. Please join us as we celebrate the human ingenuity behind marvels that reveal the creativity and compassion driving engineers to create better lives for people around the world! 

Rated G, the film runs 45 minutes and is free and open to the public. Directed by two-time Academy Award-nominee MacGillivray Freeman, and narrated by Montana's own Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges, this all ages event is a unique opportunity to turn kids on to science and engineering. "I am a believer in encouraging our youth to make a difference in the world, and Dream Big encourages young people to do just that," says Bridges. 

Both Dream Big screenings will open with “The Art of Problem Solving,” a lively introduction by KLJ Engineer Shari Eslinger, Vice-President of ASCE-MT Section, and Dr. Michael Berry, Assistant Professor, MSU Civil Engineering Department. Eslinger and Berry will shed light on how much the everyday pieces of your life are affected by the innovation of an engineer, and will and share their personal stories of what it means to be an engineer. After both screenings, join MSU Engineering students upstairs in the Ellen Theatre ballroom for fun hands-on projects and see an award-winning robot built for the NASA Robotic Mining Competition up close!

Doors will open 30 minutes before each showing. Organizations, youth groups and parties of 10 or more may request reserved seating by emailing  . Keep ‘Em Flickering!
