Wyoming Film Showcase at Jackson Filmfest
Uncategorized | May 28, 2008
For the first time this year, the Jackson Hole Film Festival is offering a “Wyoming Film Showcase,” described on the festival web site as “a serendipitous category that came together as Cevin Cathell, programming director for this year’s festival, and Artistic Director Melanie Miller, realized the impressive quality of films created by local talent.”
The six Wyoming-made films include “Teacup,” starring Jackson Hole’s own Macey Mott; “Don’t Fence Me In,” a documentary about 13 Wyoming women by Bonnie Kreps; and “This Bird Has Flown,” a fictional dance drama based on the enigmatic woman in the John Lennon song “Norwegian Wood.”
The filmfest includes films (of course), parties, filmmakers’ forums and gatherings, and the award ceremony at 8:30 p.m. on June 8), plus eight “Best of the Fest” sessions on Monday, June 9.
