Together! 2015 Disability Film Festival
(6-8pm on 11 December; 12-8pm on 12 & 13 December.
This unique free festival brings together films from across the world which have been made by disabled filmmakers or that have central disabled characters (who may be played by non-disabled people). The film festival takes place as part of the Together! 2015 Disability History Month Festival. The national theme this Month is ‘The portrayal of disability: then and now’ – with many of our films being newly released or premieres, we are very much of the now!
The many highlights include Donna Lipowitz’s highly entertaining Cat Show (12 December), Michael Achtman’s short drama Awake (12 December) and Maria Oshodi’s comedy-horror Z-Eye-Z (13 December), all newly released, with the Saturday night feature (6.15pm) being Shonali Bose’s groundbreaking Indian drama Margarita with a straw (pictured), and Sunday night the Thai martial arts film Chocolate (6.30pm).
