The Cheyenne Youth Short Film Festival presents the Fear Film Fest on November 17, 2018 at the Atlas Theatre in downtown Cheyenne, WY. Fear Film Fest is another opportunity for youth around Wyoming to create their own suspense/thriller films to compete for prizes and watch their films on the big screen.

The festival kicks off on October 26th with the release of the “brief” at 5:00pm at the Laramie County Library in Cheyenne, Cottonwood Room, which details the film requirements. The “brief” will also be posted on the festival’s Facebook page (Cheyenne Youth Short Film Festival). Participants will have two weeks to write a script and make their ideas come to life.

All films are due by 5:00pm on November 9, 2017. Entries can be submitted in person at the Laramie County Library, Willow Room, or online. Arrangements for submission can be made by sending Cheyenne Youth Short Film Festival a message through their Facebook page. More information will be provided in the brief.

A panel of judges will select nominations for various categories and best overall picture. These nominations will be released on the Cheyenne Youth Short Film Festival’s Facebook page.

On November 17, 2018, the Awards Ceremony and Premier Event of the Fear Film Fest will showcase the top films at the Atlas Theatre in Cheyenne. Cash prizes and trophies will be awarded. This event is open to the public and FREE for everyone! Come in your costume attire!

Anyone and everyone 18 years of age and under from anywhere in Wyoming is encouraged to create and submit their own short films (one to seven minutes in length) from October 26 to November 9, 2018. Any camera and any software may be used to make a film. Even a camera on a phone can be used. It is FREE to enter the festival.

It is not too late to fulfill your dreams and start making your own indie film for this year’s Fear Film Fest!
