Explore Our Town: Scituate

 

Our Town is:

  • A community project wherein neighbors become filmmakers who tell the stories of their town;
  • Part fund-raiser, part community builder, part historical and cultural documentary, and part “day-in-the-life” video scrapbook;
  • Our Town shares with viewers the local legends, historical happenings, and backyard secrets of the particular town and its villages – untold or uncelebrated stories that capture the essence of the town (*you do not need to be a resident to participate)
  • Stories and interviews are then edited together by Rhode Island PBS, with the finished product being a 1-hour documentary about the town that will premiere live on Rhode Island PBS.
