Wow! What a couple of months for our documentary Rock n Roll Island which captures Eel Pie Island, Twickenhamâ€™s extraordinary history through archive footage and interviews with key players, and was made in conjunction with the Aurora Metro bookÂ The British Beat Explosion – Rock ‘N’ Roll Island.
Last October Rock n Roll Island had its World Premiere at Londonâ€™sÂ Raindance Festival, and this year it has been shown atÂ FIVE film festivals in America, winning awards at FOUR!
In October, Cheryl Robson picked up the awards for Best Director for a Documentary at the International Family Film Festival in Hollywood, earlier in the month she attended the Carmel International Film FestivalÂ and accepted the Best Documentary award at the Glendale International Film Festival in California.
In September Cheryl found herself in Butte, Montana accepting the award for Best Documentary short film at the inaugural Covellite International Film FestivalÂ and in April Rock n Roll Island produced and directed by Cheryl Robson and Helen Walker won theÂ top award (The Gold Remi)Â for short film documentary at WorldFest, the Houston International Film Festival.
It looks as though Rock n Roll Island has really put this small island in the River Thames at Twickenham on the map!
