In a gala evening event in Toronto on Saturday, May 24th , Anglican Video was honoured with an award from the Canadian Corporate Television Association for the video program “Gathering at the River” (2002).
The national video competition received hundreds of entries from across Canada: “Gathering at the River” won a Bronze Award in the “under $30,000 category”.
The video was produced by Lisa Barry for the diocese of Rupert’s Land Indigenous Council. It documents an historic gathering of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Anglicans engaged in a process of healing and reconciliation.
In her acceptance speech, Ms. Barry acknowledged all who participated in the “Sacred Circle” depicted in the video for their “honesty and courage in sharing their stories”.
“Gathering at the River”, a 30-minute video, is available from the Anglican Book Centre, 600 Jarvis St., Toronto, ON M4Y 2J6 (416) 924-1332 or toll free (in Canada) 1-800-268-1168.
