Welcome to Digital Mountain: It’s My Park

Announcing the second annual Digital Mountain 2010: It’s My Park! Film Festival, a special event designed to actively engage, inspire, and help equip youth with digital media skills, while strengthening ties to one of Hawai‘i’s most cherished sites: Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.

It couldn’t be easier to learn some exciting new movie-making skills, even if you’ve never touched a video camera before.  We’re inviting youth, 7th-12th grades, to learn, build a video, submit it to our short film festival, and have the chance to WIN!

There is no charge to take workshops, shoot and edit using our equipment, or to enter the film festival.

A project of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.

Sponsored by the Friends of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park,
i Natural History Association, Friends for the Future,
National Park Foundation with the generous support of Unilever,
KapohoKine Adventures, Hawaii Forest and Trail,
Hawaiian Walkways, and the Big Island Film Office.
