Press Release 11th May 2017

Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub CIC

“Working the Sea” – film premiere at Sidmouth Sea Fest

Sidmouth’s fishing past comes alive in a stunning new film seen through the lens of the Bagwells, the last fishing family in Sidmouth.   “Working the Sea” connects community and coast beautifully, weaving Sidmouth’s fishing heritage through the narrative of a very resilient family through to present day users of the sea.  Connecting the role of Sidmouth Lifeboat to the vibrant and growing use of the sea as a “playground” through Sidmouth’s Gig Club, Sailing Club and Surf Life Saving Club, this 40 minute film tells a powerful and inspiring story.

Louise Cole, one of the four Directors of Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub who commissioned the film working with award winning Butterfly Effect Films, said;
“The film, it is stunning, the footage of Sidmouth is beautiful from perspectives that people don’t get to see.  The story of the Bagwell family and Sidmouth’s fishing heritage is fascinating and inspiring, funny and humbling and I love how it connects with the way that people both respect and enjoy the sea today.  It’s a powerful reminder of how lucky we are on the coast.  Our Director of Photography Simon and Writer and Producer Jo Stewart-Smith of Butterfly Effect Films have produced a beautiful, high quality well-crafted film which has a great sense of community.” 

“Working the sea” funded by East Devon AONB and the Sid Vale Association, is to be screened at Sidmouth Sea Fest Variety Night which follows the free daytime annual coastal community celebration Sidmouth Sea Fest on Saturday 13th May, on the Ham, Sidmouth.  The evening programme also includes a Smugglers Play, and live music from Anna Hamill, CaveMouth and Zak Robinson.

The festival includes local coastal organisations many of which are featured in the film, alongside Creativity on the Coast activities for all and local food and drink. 

Tickets for the evening event are available via Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sidmouth-sea-fest-variety-night-2017-tickets-33941273262  or on the day
