R’story launched

 “R’story” had its press launch at Loftus Road on Wednesday, 4 February when the hour-long film about the club and its supporters had its first screening.

 QPR1st helped to sponsor the film and Stephen Dedridge, chair of the trust, introduced the film, alongside Reena Mukherji of the Octavia Foundation, which led the production of the film, and Andy Evans, CEO of the QPR in the Community Trust.

 The film shows why QPR is important to its supporters. As well as recording the views and experience of supporters and past players, and those things that make QPR a part of west London, it does not shy away from issues such as ticket prices, terracing and safe-standing, and the growing distance between supporters and players.

 The film will be going public with a screening at 2pm at the Lexi cinema in Kensal Rise on Saturday 28 February (QPR is not playing that day).  It will then tour other cinemas and will be available as a DVD in the summer.

 More information about the film and the young people who made it is on www.octaviafoundation.org.uk.
