Princetown Film Club

MED is now running a fortnightly film club at Princetown Primary School, working with children from the Forest of Dartmoor/Central Dartmoor area. Newcomers are always welcome! The project will be running for two years, supported by a grant from the People’s Health Trust. Participants aged 7-13 years are scripting, filming and editing an exciting new film. The film tells the story of an alien from another planet who lands in Princetown in Victorian times searching for a rare mineral to save their kind from a deadly disease.

Take a look at our recent filming sessions in Princetown:
