CASPER, Wyo. — The WYO Film Festival will be held in Sheridan, Wyoming. The three-day event will start on October 1 and end October 3. The in-person festival will screen thirteen featured and short films.

“After watching a heavy helping of film and television from the comfort of our living rooms this past year, we’re thrilled to welcome audiences back to what we’re calling ‘the film festival you’ve been training for,'” said Justin Stroup, executive director of the WYO Film Festival. “Building community around the celebration of independent film has been our guiding principle since day one. We’ve worked hard during a challenging year for the industry and the world to create a unique program that upholds our core values through world-class film and social events.”

Friday night, they will kick off the event with a film about the Grand Tetons. Following the showing, the Black Tooth Brewing Company will be hosting an after-party event. According to the organizers, you can also see “the inaugural Future Filmmakers screening featuring student-made short films, a documentary feature raising awareness of missing and murdered indigenous women, and a screening of a classic silent horror film with live performance by Wyoming Baroque.”
