No sense in keeping a lid on this anymore…
Exploding Goldfish Films’ latest project, the feature film Discouraging Words will make its Western states’ debut at the Cheyenne International Film Festival in Wyoming. The film will screen at the historic Atlas Theater on the morning of Saturday, May 22nd in the festival’s Wyoming Showcase program. Discouraging Words will screen together with the short film The Deer and the Antelope, written and directed by Dillon Petrillo (funny coincidence: both films take their titles from the song Home on the Range).
The Atlas Theater is located at 211 W. Lincolnway in Cheyenne. Admission to the screening is $10. Doors open at 9:00 AM; the screening is at 9:30. You can buy tickets to this and other festival events here (For Discouraging Words, you’ll want Program 2).
The Cheyenne International Film Festival runs from May 21st-23rd and features a selection of short and feature-length narrative and documentary films from around the world, including the Oscar-nominated documentary short The Last Campaign of Governor Booth Gardner, by Cheyenne native Daniel Junge.

Being accepted into the Cheyenne International Film Festival is a dream come true, and I mean that sincerely. It’s by no means a prestigious festival; this is in fact its first year of existence. Still, Discouraging Words is a Wyoming movie. I fought hard to shoot as much of the film as I possibly could in Cheyenne and Laramie, and I am deeply honored to have the film selected for screening.
You can be sure that there will be more news here about screenings as the festival draws near.
