First Annual HAP Cellphilm Event – Summer 2022!

Share your ideas & stories about HAP by making a cellphilm!

What’s a cellphilm? A cellphilm is a short film (30 – 90 seconds long) that is made with a smartphone or tablet.

We will host all of the cellphilms on our YouTube page.

And we’ll have a virtual event to celebrate the cellphilms at the end of August.

Prizes and certificates will be awarded!!

If you’re interested in taking part, please email us (1) your name, (2) your parent’s/guardian’s name, and (3) your telephone number.

Send your email to Diana Coholic at [email protected]

Once we hear from you, we will be in touch.
