Voices on the Towpath — Community Project Film Award
CCT film maker Robert Paget received a well deserved award at Stroud Community TV Awards (SCTVA) at Lansdown Hall, Stroud, on Saturday 18th March.
Best Community Project
Robert’s ‘Voices on the Towpath’ was judged to be the winner in the Best Community Project category.
Celebration of talent, beauty and quirkiness
“Stroud Community TV Director Phillip Booth commented… “The SCTV Awards event is a celebration of local talent, beauty, diversity, community, quirkiness and more from the Five Valleys.
The event is part of the Third Stroud Film Festival and includes winning short films that allow local filmmakers to share their thoughts and skills.”
Robert was presented with his SCTVA Coffee Mug and Certificate by Victoria Temple, News Editor at Stroud Life.
Robert commented, “It is good to see film-making alive and well in the Stroud Valleys. It is a real honour to receive an award when the quality of films were of such a high quality. I grew up in Cainscross with Dudbridge Lock at the bottom of the garden – and so I am a ‘Stroudie’. Amateur film making for me is a second hobby – second to boating and canals.”
Robert added… “For me, the real stars on the night were each of those who spoke with emotion and enthusiasm in our film, some recalling their childhood memories of the canal.”
