The first-ever Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase will be presented September 30th and October 1st in the recently-opened High Definition Theater at the Craig Thomas Discovery Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park. Produced by the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival with funding provided by the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, the weekend event will feature recent work of selected regional filmmakers.
The Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase will be promoted regionally as the weekend launch event preceding this year’s Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s prestigious five-day media industry conference. Filmmakers selected for inclusion in the Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase will be hosted by the Festival throughout the weekend, and given complimentary two-day passes (value $500) to its industry conference. In partnership with the Wyoming Business Council and the Wyoming Film Office, participating filmmakers will have full access to the seminars, workshops, screenings and unmatched networking and professional development opportunities presented at the conference.
Wyoming filmmakers may propose any current and recently produced projects for screening consideration – the Wyoming Showcase collection will feature a curated selection of approximately 12 films all made by current Wyoming residents. Films may be any length or genre. Selections will be made with the intention of having a well-balanced collection and screening program – shorts are encouraged.
Following the weekend screening showcase in Jackson Hole, the Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase collection of films will be made available to other organizations wishing to host screening events in their own communities. Filmmakers will be invited to take part in Q & A sessions and ‘Meet the Filmmakers’ Receptions.To submit a film for consideration, contact Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase Director, Carrie Richer at (307) 733 7016 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission materials will include a project DVD, brief synopsis and credit information.
