After being in production for over a decade, the first season of "Slatersville: America's First Mill Village" (episodes 1-5) received two Regional Boston/New England Emmy® nominations for Outstanding Documentary and Outstanding Musical Composition, which composer Stephen Gilbane won. The series, which premiered on Rhode Island PBS and can be streamed on PBS, also received a gold Telly Award for Documentary and three film festival awards from Mass Indie Film Fest, Block Island Film Festival and LifeArt Festival.
