Wyoming Community Media (WCM) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to democratizing media in all its forms – printed, painted, sculpted, digitized – and making them accessible to all on small and large screens, exhibition space – through empowering communities to become sustainable in their own ways. WCM encourages and celebrate the arts and the New Creative Economy through integrating creativity and social awareness into the daily lives of each community served.
The Whistle Stop F.I.L.M. Festival (Filmmaker Interactive Local Meetups) is a series of screenings of independent movies, which may be of local interest, of interest to a particular group of people with a community, or just for entertainment. Digital technology makes the WSFF program available to any community through the US and the world.
Local organizers are asked to write a short narrative explaining the audience, the venue and a very basic outreach plan which can include word of mouth, email and phone trees, mailing, tradition media like newspapers and radio, social media such as facebook.
WCM provides movies and a small $100 stipend to defray the event costs. The local organizer provides the venue and brings in an audience. It is preferred that the programs are offered free of charge, but donations may be gathered.
Local organizers are asked to include the WCM logo on all promotional information
The Whistle Stop F.I.L.M. Festival is a means to integrate and converge the arts into communities and venues where movies aren’t normally shown and to provide new audiences for independent movies.
Local organizers can pick any location to screen the program – in a private home on a computer or television; in a church basement, at the local library, in the back room of a restaurant.
