STROUD COMMUNITY TV NEWSLETTER 3rd March 2017
We’re hoping 18th March will have one of those legendary Stroud evenings! It will be our fifth year of awards and we’d love you regular newsletter readers to join us. It all takes place at Lansdown Hall, doors open 7pm, starts 7.30 and entry is free! Big thanks to Stroud Town Council and Stroud Film Festival for making the venue possible.
During the Night we will show winning films plus other great local films and have a chance to meet some film makers. Special guests include the media team from Slimbridge WWT; one of them helped film the extraordinary Flight of the Swans journey across 7000 kilometres. For our Audience Award this year we plan to vote during the evening on nominations for the best film on Stroud Community TV over the last 5 years. Join us – get the date in your diary now!
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.”
