The 307 Film Festival celebrates films and filmmakers from across Wyoming, the United States, and Internationally! In 2021*, our third year, the 307 Film Festival showcased 44 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!
*In 2021 the festival went down to a single day due to the uncertainty of the pandemic. In 2022, we will be back to two days of films!
