Wyoming filmmakers will display their chops for local audiences Saturday for the first Wyoming Filmmakers Showcase, featuring short films from a slew of filmmakers hailing from Jackson Hole and around the state of Wyoming.
Carrie Richer, of Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, which is producing the event, said JHWFF wants to expose local audiences to Wyoming filmmakers who may have shown their work all over the country but haven’t yet had the chance to share their pieces in the Cowboy State.
Some of the featured local filmmakers includeTristan Greszko, whose short film, A Tiny Day in the Jackson Hole Backcountry, garnered considerable attention from viewers after its release on Vimeo six months ago for its captivating use of tilt-shift photography. Local action sports production company, Brain Farm, will also be screening a film that may surprise fans; it’s titled Wyoming Wildlife. Richer said she’s looking forward to showing a different side of the Brain Farm crew. “They’re a really well-rounded, strong group of filmmakers,” she said.
Screenings will begin at both 4 and 6 p.m., on Saturday, at the Craig Thomas Discovery Center’s new HD theater in Grand Teton National Park.
