We have a great collection of new films added this last month but first I need to share that as part of the Stroud Film Festival, Stroud Community TV will be celebrating the best of Stroud films at The Crown and Sceptre pub. This will be at 7pm (not 8pm as some adverts say) to 10pm on Wednesday 9th March. Fifteen local films will be shown including 7 winning films and a few of the runners-up. There will also be a chance to meet several local film makers.

Philip Booth, organiser of the Awards, said: “This year we are delighted to have 16 year old Archie Cox, who played Laurie Lee in the recent Cider with Rosie film on BBC, to hand out certificates and answer questions about his work. He will also be rewarding winners with their very own ‘Oscats’: Stroud Community TV’s version of the Oscars (see photo). We also have a surprise guest who I am confident will bring a smile to all!”
