WFO offers $25K prize for best short movie

TheThe Wyoming Short Film Contest is open for entries. Film makers can submit their videos online at http://www.wyomingshortfilmcontest.com . A $25,000 first prize will be awarded to the winning entry with a storyline that takes place in Wyoming, features Wyoming, or presents the state as a major character.

The 2009 winner “The Deer and the Antelope” produced by Dillon Petrillo will screen on the Cheyenne International Film Festival opening night on May 21.

Wyoming Film office staff has made the process easier this year by using popular video contest software. The new program allows the general public to vote on their favorite entry. A judging panel will then decide the winner based on the top ten most popular entries. Some criteria that the judges will keep in mind when viewing the films include production value, script, acting when relevant and Wyoming tourism value. “Our new submissions process should make it easier for filmmakers to get their work in front of the judges,” said Colin Stricklin of the Wyoming Film Office.

Wyoming Short Film Contest was introduced at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008 and again in 2009 at a Wyoming Film Office reception. “We saw a 100% increase in submissions from the first year to the second. We’re looking forward to similar numbers in 2010,” said Stricklin.

The Wyoming Film Office is not only launching the 3rd annual Short Film Contest but also a new web site. Film Office Manager Michell Howards explains “Our new web site allows us to integrate our social media and video elements. It also gives production companies a searchable locations and crew database making the web site more interactive than ever.” For more information visit www.filmwyoming.com
