A documentary based in Camden is starting to rake in the accolades.

“Dovere For Camden” won the “Best Jersey Short Documentary” at the Jersey Shore Film Festival on Aug. 12. The film chronicles a small group of people who decide to restore an abandoned bar into a theater.

Directed by Douglas Clayton, Dovere – which comes from the Italian word for responsibility and respect – tells the story of Camden’s past as an industrial powerhouse to its decline, and eventually the birth of the South Camden Theatre Company.

The film is now headed to the Global Impact Film Festival in Washington, D.C.

Check out the trailer below.
