Oscat is Listing

Stroud Telly News

September 2018


A paw-picked hour (or so) of Stroudish filmic good stuff once a month, probably.

Have we seen you here before?

Hello again! Or maybe not? If someone else forwarded this newsletter to you, then fish! That’s a fish you owe them. Mmm, fish. And if they ask why, say Oscat said so, and then sign up for your own copy on our website.

We’re your station, the station for Stroud: Stroud Community TV. The online station for all of the Five Valleys, Brimpsfield to Uley, Haresfield to Avening.

We find and share short Stroudish films, films that are made in Stroud, about Stroud, about issues that are dear to our Stroudish hearts. Do you have a film you’d like to share?

Friday night is film night, alright?

You’ve seen the teaser, now see the film, for free! The brilliant Do Not Bend is on tomorrow, Friday, 28th September, in Cheltenham. Starts at 7pm, Hardwick Campus, St Pauls, University of Gloucestershire. Say Oscat sent you.

So is Tuesday night, now you mention it

Like the look of that there Cheltenham? Jimmy Edmonds and Jane Harris’ A Love That Never Dies is playing the Literary Festival on 9th October (8 pm in the Town Hall), headlining a programme of events devoted to a more open discussion about death and how we remember our loved ones. They’ll be joined by Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love and A Manual for Heartache for a Q&A after the film. Tickets are £10.

Hello future star

16-year-old veteran of Stonehouse and Stroud Video Unit productions such as Second Sight, Brad Christy, has been awarded an Institute of Amateur Cinematographers Exceptional Actor regional award. Congratulations!

Trains are mint

We love a great bit of train film, we really do. Over the Summer our local railways saw a huge amount of unusual traffic (but no music or dancing) and you were out filming it. This is some of what you saw.

Fish, fish, or fish?

Ah August. And September. A bit of both. What to watch? It’s hard to choose favourites, and we don’t really like to, but Oscat believes that you ought to watch these.

Will the lead double-point please stick to the score, thank you

The future mainstream, just so you know

I don’t think you’ll hear from a more admirable person today

Thought of the Month

Hidden Gem

But don’t forget

We uploaded 13 other films this month. We can’t tell you about them all, so please follow the pawprints over to our website and see what you like.

Oscat is generous

Oscat believes you are all wonderful judges of filmic excellence. Please nominate a film from our archive that you think we should highlight to people just joining us.

This month: There and back, with cake and small aliens (from 2012). Make cake, not war.

No cat is an island

Oscat still needs help and ideas. If you think you know how we might improve Stroud Telly, or ideas for things we should do, or can actually help, please get in touch.

About Dmytro Bojaniwskyj

I escaped physics for a life messing with words. On a moonlit street corner in Vienna I was recruited to become Oscat's PA. Or was it while punting on the Granta?
