The seventh annual Together! 2018 Disability Film Festival takes place from 7-9 December at the Old Town Hall Stratford, screening films by Deaf/Disabled filmmakers and films with a strong central Deaf/Disabled character. This is the only UK Disability film festival to include Deaf and Disabled people from all impairment groups, including Disabled people with physical and sensory conditions, learning difficulties, mental health difficulties and long-term health conditions. The Festival is FREE – we even serve you free drinks and snacks – and open to all.
We include films made on every budget and by filmmakers of all ages. Our priority is to provide a platform for strong storytelling, highlighting the lived experiences of Deaf/Disabled people from diverse backgrounds, and the talents of community, emerging and mid-career Deaf/Disabled filmmakers. Many of our films are world or international premieres, and go on to festivals worldwide. We welcome filmmakers to join us at the festival, and do all we can to facilitate networking.
To submit your film (late deadline 15 October 2018), email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information: Title of Film / Name of Director / Country where film has been made / date the film was completed / length of film (in minutes and seconds) / where (if at all) the film has been shown before / language of film / access information (does it have English captions?
