WYO Theater announces Future Filmmakers program – Sheridan Media


WYO PLAY is a series of educational programs that build on the legacy of the WYO Theater as a center of artistic entertainment and education in the surrounding community. In addition to honoring the past, educational programs help usher in a bright future for Sheridan’s creative economy and artistic life.

WYO PLAY, a program of the WYO Performing Arts & Education Center, will host an information session on Saturday, November 20 at 10 a.m. for students to learn more about future filmmakers and what it means to participate in the program.

According to the WYO Theater, this program is in collaboration with the WYO Film Festival. WYO PLAY offers the Future Filmmakers program for students in grades 8-12. In this program, students will develop through guided instruction from professional filmmakers and the practical application of film skills and principles by participating in original screenwriting and a variety of master classes. The program will culminate with the production of a short film which will then be presented at the WYO Film Festival.

Prospective students must complete an application and submit it by November 30. Students will then be selected and informed of admission status during the first week of December.
