We’re delighted that one of our recent short films, exploring the realities of social media, has won the award for Best Campaign film at the Stroud Film festival.

Stroud Community TV hosted the event as part of the annual Stroud Film Festival, which celebrates film and photography in the five valleys area around Stroud. The winning short film was one of three shown at our recent Liedentity conference, and listens to pupils of Stroud High School share their experiences of (and some of the ethics surrounding) social media.

Presenting the award, Faye Hatcher of BBC Gloucestershire said, “I’ve just been blown away by the films this evening; what an amazing showcase for what’s going on in the area”

Sam Cavender, who works for the Diocese of Gloucester and was there to speak about the campaign and receive the award, said “It was a great evening, really amazing quality of films on show and such a great diversity as well.” Talking to the audience about the campaign itself, he said “I think we’d all say working on the Liedentity campaign has been a great honour because we’re really talking about human value and ethics; how we value each other and the sometimes devastating effects that image-first social media can have on children’s sense of identity; a topic very close to our hearts.”
