Welcome to Rural Route Communications

When the pandemic forced cancellation of last summer's Ayer's Cliff Fair, the fair board hosted an innovative drive-in. It included the presentation of a documentary that Louise Abbott directed about this much-loved event. Now the board wants to share the film online. The Vimeo link is below. Louise, her crew members (Vito DeFilippo, Niels Jensen, and Tanya Rhodes), and translator Mélanie Grondin were all delighted to work on the project. We hope you enjoy the documentary!

 Hatley Poet Angela Leuck and Louise Abbott of Rural Route Communications have collaborated on a new book--an anthology of work by contemporary women poets of the Eastern Townships of Quebec. The Townshippers' Research and Cultural Foundation as well as the municipality of Canton de Stanstead and the MRC de Memphrémagog  all contributed funding for this exciting project, which is the first of its kind. Louise created portraits of the poets for the book and also created video poems with several of the poets.  https://vimeo.com/showcase/7706238 

The anthology was published by Studio Georgeville in April 2021.

The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers

Rural Route Communications is pleased to announce that Louise Abbott was chosen as one of five Canadian filmmakers for the Tell Our Stories project of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Her mini documentary The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers is now online:

Our thanks to all those who contributed to the film and to Friends of Canadian Broadcasting for co-producing it.

Friends of Canadian Broadcasting launched Tell Our Stories out of concern that Canadian stories are in danger of disappearing as Canadian newspapers and broadcasters shut down operations, and more and more people turn to online services like Netflix and Disney+, where Canadian stories are few and far between.

Friends commissioned the five documentaries "to show that there are thousands more Canadian stories out there just waiting to be told."

During the coronavirus pandemic, one rural student in the Eastern Townships of Quebec made his high school graduation memorable by the ride he took to the outdoor ceremony in Magog.  Louise Abbott produced a short video titled Riding to Graduation to commemorate the event:
