RAFFA takes Red Carpet on the road

Lockdown changes and COVID uncertainties saw the Raglan Arts Film Festival Awards (RAFFA) team take the Red Carpet to the winners. Pre-Covid, the Raglan Town Hall would have been abuzz with filmmakers and their supporters, glamorously attired, walking an actual red carpet. 

This year, the RAFFA team went door-to-door delivering awards and catching the winners on film.  Through the wonders of the internet the awards ceremony recently went live.  

So, pop on your best red carpet trackies, grab a cuppa or a beer, jump on the couch and click on
