The Petoskey area hosts a variety of events, including our favorite special events list to the left that we look forward to every year!
The Harbor Springs Sk8 Park and The Harbor Springs Library Present -
The Harbor Springs Youth Film Festival
The Harbor Springs Sk8 and the Harbor Springs Library invite aspiring young directors, producers, animators, actors, and actresses to create their own films. Film festival participants will need to write, direct, star in (or cast actors to star in), and edit their own films. Film editing help will be available to those who need or want assistance.
The purpose of the Youth Film Festival is to showcase the talents of young people living in our community. The Youth Film Festival will include a Community Film Screening with the option for viewers to vote for their favorite films and a festival awards night similar to the popular Hollywood award shows.
