Hawaii Volcanoes National Park invites students to enter film festival | Arts & Culture
The following information is provided by Hawaii Volcanoes National Park:
Hawaii National Park, Hawai‘i – Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park is ready for its close up, and invites students to focus their cameras on the park and enter the fourth annual Digital Mountain Film Festival.
Student filmmakers from seventh to twelfth grade can contact Park Ranger Kūpono McDaniel to arrange filming and editing at the park, and beginners are welcome. Ranger Kūpono can be reached at 985-6015 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This is an opportunity not only for students to express what Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park means to them in a creative, fun way, but for the park to see how we are perceived by our youth – the ones who will be the future stewards of public lands,” said McDaniel.
The short films will be uploaded by park staff to YouTube, and the public will be able to vote for their favorite films online starting Nov. 12. The deadline for all entrants is Nov. 5. The park will loan cameras to students who need them.
The Digital Mountain Film Festival culminates on Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. with a celebration and public showing of the films at the park’s Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium. Winners, who have a chance to win Mac laptop computers and digital cameras, will be announced at the festival.
This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous support of L.L. Bean, Disney, the Anschutz Foundation, and the Ahmanson Foundation.
Additional help, funding, and support comes from the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association, and the Big Island Film Office.
For more information, contact Ranger Kūpono McDaniel at 985-6015 or by email at email@example.com, and visit the festival’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/DigitalMountainFilmFestival.
