That the Parliament congratulates Cruden Bay-based Doric TV for winning the group category at the 2022 Doric Film Festival; understands that the film festival invited people to submit films up to five minutes long, which expressed north east stories, personal or otherwise, in the Doric language and reflect its cultural identity with the theme of “A sense o’ time”; understands that an awards ceremony was held in June 2022 where the short-listed films were presented on the big screen before the winners of each category were announced; notes that the winners of each category were awarded a cheque for £500; acknowledges that Doric TV’s film Doric Future brought together five Doric enthusiasts on a Zoom call recorded during the COVID-19 lockdown period; understands that the film’s participants presented memories of their personal past, what Doric means to them, and thoughts on the importance of preserving Doric into the future, and wishes Doric TV every success in their future projects.
