STROUD COMMUNITY TV APPEAL FOR FILMS AND HELP

We are still after help with reviewing films and help to develop Stroud Community TV. In the last month we have met with a couple of students, both with some wonderfully creative ideas for Stroud films. We are also slowly progressing the idea of Community Reporters. Read more below about the last month at SCTV which perhaps, understandably for August, saw our viewing figures dip to just over 3,000 unique visitors. See more on this website.

FEATURED FILMS:

Stroud’s Edible Open Gardens; sees films about permaculture, a great edible garden in Chalford, the County Coppice Group and how to make a polytunnel yourself: http://stroudcommunity.tv/tag/edible-open-gardens/

Transition Stroud also hosted the amazing Otesha theatre project that arrived in Stroud last week on bicycles. See them at: http://stroudcommunity.tv/otesha-project-bring-theatre-to-stroud/

In terms of community projects see the plans behind Boots in the High Street: http://stroudcommunity.tv/the-new-community-kitchen-in-the-hidden-garden-of-stroud/

Other film highlights include a film highlighting ‘Fibro, ME/CFS Babes and Guys’, three Forest Green Rovers matches, the wildflowers at Wallbridge, the August gardening tips from Rococo Gardens, the impact of Fareshares, poetry at The Albert, the new Disibility Hate Crime film made by students of the Star College working with Police and Bec Waters Story Time.

MUSIC:

This last month sees more music uploaded from the ‘Lark in the Park’ Festival at Berkeley Castle in aid of Stroud’s Door project. Highlights include Doreen Doreen, Waiting for Kate and the Red Moccasins. Plus we have Stonehouse artist ‘K’ doing the cover ‘First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’, the Herons! live in Brussels and Sam Jones doing an Ed Sheeran cover.

FUTURE NOW PROJECT:

Sadly we heard we were not successful for the ‘Future Now’ Lottery bid. SCTV made up one sixth of the project and had got to the final round; we were in the last 30 projects vying for 10 grants of £1m. In the feedback to the bid, it was good to see the comment about part of SCTV’s input: “We felt that your project demonstrated a strong commitment to communication and increasing awareness. We were particularly pleased with the proposed use of social media and other media outlets to promote the project which would be particularly important in ensuring that young people were engaged with the activities.” We will now be looking to see if parts of the project can still go forward with partner organisations.

T-FEST @ROSES IN TEWKESBURY:

Y-Occupy, Voice It and The Roses present a jam packed festival full of local British music, an independent youth film festival and workshops: 31st August – 2nd September. Stroud Community TV have helped submit a number of films to the Festival that includes a film festival and free 2hr master class. For more details see: http://www.rosestheatre.org/live/t-fest.aspx
