STROUD COMMUNITY TV  NEWSLETTER 2nd Feb 2018

Stroud Community TV Awards 2017; our community recorded and celebrated 

Saturday 17th March at Lansdown Hall – all welcomed – free entry – doors open 7.00pm, event starts 7.30pm and the bar will be open with cafe-style tables. Finish at 10pm.

As a regular subscriber to our newsletter we hope you might join us for the evening. The Awards evening is a wonderful celebration of local talent, beauty, quirkiness and more of the Five Valleys. The evening, which is part of the Fourth Stroud Film Festival, will include winning short films and local filmmakers sharing thoughts.

Local filmmaker Jimmy Edmonds perhaps best sums it up when he writes of a previous Awards evening: “There was no red carpet and no tuxedos, no massed ranks of photographers and no star spotters – neither was there a big name celebrity to clutch a golden statue to her breast before revealing the winner. But what there was, was pure Stroud……The audience fed on…small but intense delicacies with enthusiasm and true appreciation of the ability of film and video to reach the parts that bigger movies might not – a community recorded and represented in its own way, unmediated by any need to make a profit or sell an idea.”
