The mission of WCM is to encourage and celebrate the art of film and digital media through creative forums for artistic and social awareness in the community served.

WCM offers a variety of programs throughout the year including:

CIFF offers audiences an opportunity to see films from around the world and network with and learn from producers, director, writers and photographers.

Through partnerships with Downtown Cheyenne, the Downtown Cheyenne Merchants’ Association, the Wyoming Film Office, the City of Cheyenne, and the Cheyenne Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, WCM is creating a strong community-based infrastructure to support film and digital media.
