Future Filmmakers Program


In collaboration with Sheridan Travel & Tourism and the WYO Film Festival, WYO PLAY is offering the Future Filmmakers Program for high school and college age students aged 16 years and up. 

The WYO PLAY Future Filmmakers Program offers a comprehensive curriculum in an 8-week period (February 27-April 30, 2024). In the first three weeks, students of the program will get an overview of filmmaking through a series of six workshops that focus on three phases of filmmaking: story writing, film shooting, and editing. Then, the students will work in small groups to write and produce two short films. Finally, students will have the last 4 weeks to edit their short films in preparation for a premier in the WYO Film Festival in Fall 2024!

Through a combination of course work and project-based learning, students will get hands-on experience in multiple areas of film production. Broadly, they will build their skills in leadership, artistic expression, and teamwork.
