WYO Theater announces Future Filmmakers Program

WYO PLAY is a series of educational programs that builds upon the WYO Theater’s legacy as a center for arts entertainment and education in the surrounding community. In addition to honoring the past, the educational programs are part of ushering 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 Info Session on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 10 a.m. for students to learn more about the 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 8th – 12th grade. In this program, students will grow through guided instruction from professional filmmakers and practical application of filmmaking skills and principles by participating in original screenwriting and a variety of masterclasses. The program will culminate with the production of a short film which will then be presented at the WYO Film Festival.

Prospective students are required to fill out an application and submit it by Nov. 30. Students will then be selected and notified of admission status within the first week of December.
