Wyoming Community Media – is the sister organization serving the state of Wyoming with the same services as BCM.

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.

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.

BCM/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.

Why? 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.

Where? 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.
