Wyoming's longest running International film festival, the 307 Film Festival, celebrates films and filmmakers from across Wyoming, the United States, and Internationally! In 2022, our fourth year, the 307 Film Festival showcased 63 films from around the World. Taking place in scenic Laramie, Wyoming, home of the University of Wyoming, the 307 Film Festival screens at Studio City - a state-of-the-art theatre with reclining seats.

We welcome films of all genres – from horror to comedy, drama and romance, to family, documentary, action, animation, and adventure. If you have a compelling story, we want to see it! Run by filmmakers with a passion for movies, we guarantee that every submission is carefully considered for our festival, and will be watched in its entirety.

To celebrate Wyoming we offer our unique "307 Deadline" for the first 4 weeks, enter your film for only $3.07!

    I'm very grateful that A Tattoo for Christmas was selected as Best Screenplay. All of the festival folks were wonderful - very accommodating and kind. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome. The films were played at a full-screen theater, too! I met some very nice filmmakers from all over the US. Would love to see a coffee hour or something that's specific for networking. Thanks everyone!!!
