Sheridan WYO is thoughtfully curated and the attention to detail is wonderful. The town is picturesque and tiny so there’s a lot of interaction between filmmakers and festival-goers. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend this special festival to filmmakers.
— Rachael Waxler, Filmmaker

We look for films of all shapes and sizes that are innovative, inspirational and capture the independent spirit of the world's greatest storytellers and filmmakers.

The Sheridan WYO Film Festival is committed to the celebration of independent film in all its forms and bringing it to wider audiences.
