Dart Valley In Focus Film Project

The Dart Valley is a beautiful, iconic part of Dartmoor. Along it there are important archaeological sites and amazing wildlife habitats. It attracts thousands of visitors each year.

This project has aimed to give five young people a platform to articulate their view of the natural world to a wider audience, by providing training in film making skills, mentoring and support. It has focused on the incredible heritage of the Dart Valley and challenged the film makers to look at the positive and negative impacts that people have on the Dart Valley, Dartmoor and the wider countryside.

These talented film makers will go forward with a better understanding of the natural and cultural heritage of the national park, the issues and conflicts that arise and with wider skills in film design, production and marketing. Through their films they are champions for Dartmoor, and it has been a pleasure working with them all.
