Film Fellows Cast New Light on Wilderness
Harpers Ferry Center and the NPS Wilderness Stewardship program have built a partnership with American University to produce short-form on-line videos. Each three- to five-minute video focuses on the landscapes and ideas of the 1964 Wilderness Act.
The film fellows are MFA candidates and the next generation of environmental filmmakers. They approach NPS stories differently—each with their own unique, artistic lens—and they often engage younger audiences more effectively.
In a letter to HFC, then Associate Director for Visitor and Resource Protection Steve Shackelton states "This is definitely one of the most rewarding relationships I have had the honor of experiencing here in DC. Matching the dedication, skill, and professionalism of your staff with the energy, talent, and commitment of AU students...wow! It’s magic!"
